Tony Sirico and Dominic Chianese in 1978's Fingers

An odd movie, but I've come to expect that from the independent-minded James Toback (who directed the upcoming Mike Tyson documentary).
Harvey Keitel is incredible, though, disturbing in this flick.

Anyway, I got excited watching the opening credits and seeing a Anthony Sirico listed. Sure enough, all it took was a couple of Paulie-like finger snaps from Tony's character, and I knew it was him. Funny stuff.
Dominic, who's also in Toback's "When Will I Be Loved," appears briefly as a piano instructor of some kind.

Anyone seen this before? I can't imagine it was much of a hit upon its release.
