Storyline

John Heard came back from the war minus an eye, a leg and an arm. He drinks a lot and abuses his wife, who also drinks a lot. Jeff Bridges is a friend who witnesses a murder. From this point John is "after" the killer, along side the diseased sister, while Jeff doesn't really want to get involved in it. Written by Jonathan <jrd@netvision.net.il>

User Reviews

 
Jeff Bridges & John Heard shine in this 80's gem.

John Heard gives an Oscar-caliber performance in Ivan Passer's psychological-thriller. A well-crafted script delivers the goods from start to finish, and Jack Nitzsche's score complements the story beautifully. A must-see for fans of the genre.
