Plot: Abel Ferrara (BAD LIEUTENANT) directed this feature-length TV pilot for producer Michael Mann (HEAT, MIAMI VICE). Set in 1963 Chicago, the story centers around a duel between tough cop Mike Torello (Dennis Farina) and slick, ambitious young mobster Ray Luca (Anthony John Denison). As the bullets fly and Luca's lawyer makes sure nothing sticks to his client, Torello descends into a moral abyss, using any dirty tricks he can to bring about the justice that the system doesn't seem to care about. He also grows insanely jealous of his neglected wife (Darlanne Fluegel) and begins to question his own integrity. The stellar cast features David Caruso, a family friend of Torello's working for Luca; Ted Levine; and a young Julia Roberts. The score is by rocker Todd Rundgren. Realistic performances, rich attention to period detail (including lots of classic rhythm and blues blaring from jukeboxes), beautiful photography, and intense action sequences make CRIME STORY a fine addition to the credits of all concerned. The subsequent TV series lasted two years and is considered by many to be one of the best cop shows of the 1980s.
