The Friends of Eddie Coyle 8:05 p.m., Flix
Hands-down, no contest, this 1973 film is the best Boston movie ever made. Adapted from the novel by the late George V. Higgins, it stars Robert Mitchum in his last great movie performance. Mitchum (pictured) brings unforced poignancy to such scenes as when Eddie, watching a Bruins game in the old Boston Garden, yells “Number Four, Bobby Orr! What a future that kid’s got!’’ — unaware that the two guys with him are intent on making sure Eddie has no future himself. With Peter Boyle as a bartender/hit man, “Eddie Coyle’’ also reminds us how chilling the pre-“Young Frankenstein,’’ pre-“Everybody Loves Raymond’’ Boyle could be.
