Band of the Hand (1986) - Blu-ray Review

Band of the Hand (1986) - Blu-ray ReviewThe odds of being remembered were never in Band of the Hand’s favor.  Most people only recall the explicit violence and the pop-minded title song that Dylan wrote and performed with The Heartbreakers.  I guess the odds never really mattered anyway as they were ...
