Robert Rossen was dying when he made this film and many regard it as an act of expiation for his behaviour during the McCarthy witch hunts in the 50s when he was a leading friendly witness. See more »

You've killed with these hands. Why?
That's the business of a soldier.
You must love your God a lot to kill for him and still go on loving him. I'd never ask that of a lover. I'd only ask his joy.

This forgotten, totally under-appreciated film from 1964 is very powerful (I believe it was Robert Rossen's last film). Strangely hypnotic and frightening in a very subtle way, this showed Beatty three years before B&C showing the potential he had in Splendor in the Grass. He also met Gene Hackman while making this and later cast him as his brother in B&C which launched Hackman.
There is also a splendid performance from Peter Fonda, of all people. As Hackman's wife, Jessica Walter showed how amazing she was at a relatively young age and just never got the right parts in decent films. You'll also see a young Rene Auberjenois and Olympia Dukakis in a bit part. I hope more people look into this devastating piece on mental illness.
