You gotta know what you're

doing when you go in.

You gotta have it figured out.

Those are the rules.

How you get in, how you get out.

How many shots you gonna need.

Make sure you know where everybody is.

Make sure nobody sees you.

Don't hang around. Don't get interested.

Then you don't make mistakes.


I'd just like to go to Detroit and

see a man in the hotel Friday morning.

I don't do that anymore.

I'll double your price.

You can do whatever you want.

Can't hear you chief.

I'm thinking this guy in the hotel,

is somebody you don't

want to look in the face.

I'm thinking maybe it's the old man with

the big house you want to move into.

Guy passes time...

and he don't like how you do things.

- F*ck you. I'll get somebody else.

- You don't have no somebody else.

You call me when

your people won't do it.

You want to leave it all behind

chief, here's your chance.

You have a Cadillac.

- The blue one.

- Yeah

Throw that in there you

never see me again.

You can collect your money next Tuesday.

Union Station. The usual place.

He'll have a girl with him.

She'll let you in.

You got something for me?

From your son-in-law.

Ah... Christ!

I told my daughter don't marry

that punk. She don't listen.

They gave me six months.

Throw me another funeral

You want him done sooner

than that, you tell me.

- Who the hell are you?

- You don't remember.

Should I?

You know Walpole Island, Papa?

It's an Indian reserve.

My grandmother lives there.

She's a medicine-woman.

She was going to turn me

into an "Owl" one time.

I told her I don't wanna be no "Owl".

I want to be a Blackbird.

- That's how I got my name.

- Blackbird...

You remember now? The Degas Brothers.

One killed working for you.

Shot dead in the hospital.

The other one doing life in Kingstown.

I'm the only one left.

Can she do that?

Turn you into an "Owl"?

If she wants to.

I could use a woman like that.

I'd like to be dressed.

Is that okay with you?

Whatever you want.

- Are you through?

- Not yet.

It can be used equally as

a recreation room or den.

And more than a distinctive

entrance hall.

It's so practical,

and yet elegant.

Thank you.



Don't call me

about coming back!

Mrs. Palino? Richie Nix.

You were my foster mum for a while.

Got a collection of old

Elvis vinyls I left here...

a while back.

My girlfriend she's a big Elvis fan.

Thought we'd come by

and pick 'em from ya.

Last time I saw you...

you drove off in my car.

F*ck off.

Before I call the police.

If you're looking for your

grandmother, she's gone.

We buried her last winter.

- Here.

- Thanks.


- Yeah...

- You looking for another job?

I don't know... try my hand

in real estate, maybe.

- Put you in an office and a suit.

- You bet!

Hey, Lionel!

Where's your team?

I'm sorry about your grandmother.

The band office's been trying

to locate the next of kin,

to find out

what to do with her house.

Hey, I've been thinking...

When I get paid for this job I done,

maybe I could fix the place up.

- You could sell it the way it is

- I mean fix it up and live here.

A guy like you,

used to living in the city?

There's no life for you here.

I could always be a friendly Indian,

like you. Maybe even a guide.

- You wouldn't like it.

- Why not, you do?

Come on. You telling

me I can't live here?


You wanna ride in a Cadillac?

Come on we take a drive,

go to Algonac, have some drinks.

You go. I gotta go home.

- Hey.

- Hi.

- Didn't let myself in.

- Right.

Which is kinda weird.

Well I made a start.

I thought I'd leave
