Mistakes Happen
25 July 2018 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

The appearance of a subdued Sammy Davis Jr. in a cameo as a truck driver establishes early on the quirky unpredictability that informs much of the rest of this raw little independent production superbly shot in colour in 15 days by veteran cameraman Stanley Cortez that sure lives up to its title. (I could, however, have done with less of Paul Glass's noisy score, which is still pounding away in my head as I write this.)

John Marley has one of the larger supporting roles, and is notably good as one of the relatively few 'normal' characters. After a rather meandering middle section involving bikers Robert Duvall and Richard Jaeckel it picks up pace again with a trio of eccentrics played by Laurene Tuttle, George Tobias and Keenan Wynn and a conclusion that improbably but satisfyingly settles the question that increasingly preys on your mind as it approaches the end of its 80 minute running time: how on earth is this all going to be resolved in the time left?
