Surfing in wave of french Nouvelle vague Arthur Penn made one's most intriguing movie on the 60' and the second movie of new star Warren Beatty who wants to do a right move in the beginning of your career,but this independent movie didn't have any impact in that time taking years to became a cult status...even today isn't for all taste,telling story of young guy who is a comic stand up and after make some excesses is running from the mob...end up in Chicago living on underground and a paranoid life...a mix of styles given to this picture some weirdo reading....ain't conventional movie!!!
