Reviews
Mine: Strange movie in the way that it manipulates the emotions of the audiance. It at the same time asks us to sympathise and hate the lead character. Douglas does a good job with the role. Ultimatly does not have much of a point, except maybe that life sucks, and that leaves you with a empty feeling.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Nerdy Douglas blows his cool one morning, abandons his car in freeway traffic, and starts wandering L. A. on an increasingly violent odyssey--while Duvall, his last day before retiring from the police force, sniffs him out. Dead-on portrait of a disenfranchised, modern-day American who goes off the deep end. It's vivid, it's credible, it's extremely well acted... but what exactly is the point? Panavision.
