A sizzling psychological thriller set in the New York underworld, MEN OF RESPECT is a gritty, realistic portrayal of one man's quest for power ... and the terrible price he pays to keep it. Inspired by Shakespeare's 'Macbeth', this searing adaptation stars John Turturro as Michael Battaglia, a fearless mobster who wins the respect and admiration of his powerful godfather (Rod Steiger) by assassinating the leaders of a rival family. But the prodding of his ambitious wife and the prophecy of a ghetto gypsy convince Battaglia to murder the godfather and claim his crown. A brilliant study of the criminal mind, as well as a fascinating look at the modern Mafia, MEN OF RESPECT is a roller-coaster ride of action and suspense.
