The kids take it hard when you left?
I imagine. Ah, screw it, man. I'm gonna' provide for them when we make it. I'm gonna' give 'em half my share. Besides, I got some accident money left.
I got in a car wreck and sustained some heavy "brain damage". That's the easiest one to pull now. Whiplash don't work no more. Broke a leg once. But brain damage, man, that's the easiest one. Ten thousand, just like that. I'm lucky like that, man. Things happen to me.

This film was barely seen in 1972 starring Kristofferson and Gene Hackman as a scumbag cop. Harry Dean Stanton is marvelous as Kris' friend and Karen Black is always interesting. The cute Joy Bang is even here. This film was so far under the radar, most people forgot it even exists.
A 7 out of 10. Best performance = Harry Dean Stanton. Hackman should have played more characters like this one. This may be Kristofferson's best work (as an actor) along with Blume in Love. Great cinematography and location work. I can't believe this wasn't a hit in 1972. Track this one down and you won't be disappointed.
There was plenty of "junk" in the golden age 70's, but this film should not be included.
