Directed by Jerry Schatzberg
Starring: Jason Robards, Christian Anholt, Samuel
Based on the novel by Fred Uhlman
Screenplay by Harold Pinter published in Collected
Harold Pinter's script gets hold of our attention
by purposely juggling with a time device he employed to great
effect in Betrayal.
Schatzberg tells his story honestly and earnestly.
Nothing should detract from the high-mindedness of his purpose
to breathe a little reality into a Hollywood where the comic-strip
view of the world currently reigns supreme.
