Find Me Guilty

( 4 )

Overview

A wise guy turns his own trial upside down by serving as his own lawyer in this comedy drama based on a true story. In 1987, an extensive investigation into the activities of the Lucchese crime family led to charges being filed against most of the key members of the gang, leading to the prosecution of 20 different men, each represented by their own council. That is, except for Giacomo DiNorscio, aka Jackie Dee Vin Diesel, a longtime Lucchese family "mechanic" implicated in everything from kidnapping to drug ...

Overview

A wise guy turns his own trial upside down by serving as his own lawyer in this comedy drama based on a true story. In 1987, an extensive investigation into the activities of the Lucchese crime family led to charges being filed against most of the key members of the gang, leading to the prosecution of 20 different men, each represented by their own council. That is, except for Giacomo DiNorscio, aka Jackie Dee Vin Diesel, a longtime Lucchese family "mechanic" implicated in everything from kidnapping to drug dealing. While Jackie Dee is obviously a common criminal and guilty of all he's charged with, he also has a fierce sense of loyalty to his colleagues, despite the fact his cousin Tony Companga Raul Esparza previously tried to kill him out of fear he might talk. Sean Kierney Linus Roache, the prosecutor tackling the Lucchese Family case, tries repeatedly to persuade Jackie Dee to testify against his partners in exchange for leniency, but he stubbornly refuses. Tired of the way things are being handled, Jackie Dee informs family attorney Ben Klandis Peter Dinklage that he intends to represent himself in court; this seemingly suicidal move turns into an unexpected success as Jackie Dee's sense of humor and streetwise charm has a remarkable impact on the judge and jury. Find Me Guilty also stars Ron Silver, Alex Rocco, and Annabella Sciorra.

    Vin Diesel usually plays lovable surprisingly-deep characters, such as Riddick and The Iron Giant, and ignore the moralistic anonymous "mixed feelings" and enjoy watching him succeed again. The comedy in this movie is directly from the actual trial and not something added. Jury Nullification is a real feature of modern jurisprudence--as with The O.J. Trial. It happens and this shows exactly how it works. Sympathy is one of the most powerful emotions. I put this movie up as the other side of the coin shown in 12 Angry Men; there are no deliberation scenes only courtroom drama. The meta morality here is about people choosing to live their lives free of Government interference--whether we holier-than-thou Christians like it or not. There is a mathematical description of this known as Game Theory and the related Co-operation Theory, and Conspiracy is a subset of them. In WWI, generals on both sides were furious when their troops stopped fighting for Christmas on the battlefield in the trenches. Judge this movie after you watch it and think about it.

    Mixed Feelings

    This movie is rated as a comedy, and there are funny scenes. But every time I laughed, a frown crossed my face soon after. I do not understand the logic in the no-snitch rule at all one person wastes away their whole life so other folks who were equally wrong get to live their lives free as a bird. I remember hearing a song by a new hip-hop group saying something to the effect of "Don't do dumb s--- and nobody'll have to snitch." That was basically my attitude through this whole movie. I'm not a fan of cops, but I don't really root for the bad guys either. It was interesting to hear the dialogue from the real trial, see Vin Diesel play a very convincing Italian character in full form Mafia stereotype, and some pretty interesting logic on the FBI and the cops. It was educational to learn how witnesses were gathered, how descriptions were made (specifically the "look Italian" scene), and I loved it when Jack's wife reacted to one of the police officers. The movie was basically about a guy who was trying to defend himself as a lawyer with no previous experience, and defend the rest of his "friends," one of which belittled him the entire time. Although I found the movie interesting, it was rather depressing to see that this is based on a real life story. I have so many mixed feelings about the "ratting" rule to the point where I may not have enjoyed the comedy in its full form because I was too busy trying to analyze the case. The movie was cool I'd recommend it for Vin Diesel's acting, but at the same time, I don't understand why this was even made into a movie. It glorifies a lifestyle that definitely does not need the extra attention.

    No, not really

    This movie is just a total bore from the very beginning. It's a far different role for Vin Diesel, a role in which he succeeds but which can't save this dismal movie. I didn't care for any of the other characters besides Diesel, and after 45 minutes couldn't stomach this waste of celluoid so I yanked it out of the DVD player.
