Little Odessa (1994)

Little Odessa is a dark film centering on the consequences of one's actions and the inevitable entanglements that come with relationships.

Returning to a Jewish-Russian enclave on Coney Island, hitman Joshua tries to avoid reconnecting with his estranged family as he plans for another job. His little brother, his mother, his ex-girlfriend can't stay away and he ends up deep in family drama and deep in conflict with a local gang.

The film pays off with its gifted acting and explosive ending, though it does drag on for the first hour.
