A Strange Motion Picture
I had seen this movie in a theatre when it made the rounds, but remembered little about it. Now that I have seen it a second time, I would state that it is one of the strangest movies I have ever seen! It is sort of an Archie Bunker meets "Falling Down" story line. The acting is uneven. Peter Boyle portrays a strong personality quite well, while Dennis Patrick, the mostly mild-mannered character who can be pushed to the limit when he explodes, comes across as somewhat robotic. But you won't fall asleep watching this movie because of the powerful story line, the action (some of it violent) and, well, its weirdness.
