WHITE HEAT (1949) 4 stars

James Cagney's signature role. A classic gangster film that influenced legions of fans and film artists. Its brutal story is matched by the comeuppance that Cagney faces. At the heart of the twisted story, is the love between and mother and son. Unhealthy to say the least but somehow we can't help but be drawn into this enticing mess.
