"Confronted by an FBI agent (Russ Camarda) who gives thinly veiled threats to Angelo’s legitimate business dealings, suggests he’s after a way to get Angelo and bring him down. That’s when Roman is released after just 15 years, and is more than ready to get back what is his. And Angelo is more than surprised to see his old friend return.
...there is a carefully written script, with noir style direction is brilliant for this short film Stand Up Guy, capturing a small part of a gangster life. With each actor fitting their part, down to the New York accent and smart suits, makes this short is a great piece with punchy dialogue from writer director Lee Kolinksy, who continues to impress with his filmmaking skills."
