Richard Dreyfuss was considerably ill during most of the shoot. He would only be able to film at least 2 to 3 hours at most and would be sent home for the rest of the day. People have stated that it was caused by his heavy drug use at the time and one of the reasons he does not remember that even participated in this film despite his great performance. See more »
I caught this on Cable a few years back and was blown away by Richard Dreyfuss's performance. A very deep film not for the faint of heart. If you don't like to think don't see this film. Cause this will definetely bend you noodle. In my oppinion Richard Dreyfuss is definetely in the top five actors of his generation. After seeing this film you will know why I rank him so high. Excellent Sceenplay and Direction. WARNING: Like I said not for the faint of heart.
