A convincingly menacing presence in such films as Goodfellas, Dick Tracy, and Nixon, Sorvino was just effective in comedy, memorably alongside George Burns in Oh God, and as a crooked insurance executive in the satire Bullworth. In addition to numerous TV roles and several directorial efforts, he was the father of Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino.
Directed by Roger Corman
Although reprehensible for their affinity for Nazi imagery, proclivity for sexual assault and overt racism, something about the anarchic energy of the biker gang at the heart of Roger Corman's The Wild Angels still carries a perverse charm. There's the chaos that ensues when they turn a funeral for a dead member into a full-on rager and a certain sort of thrill that comes from watching them take over a roadside bar that taps into a very primal sort of power and freedom. Peter Fonda, Nancy Sinatra, Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern star.
