A mood piece
3 October 2015 | by MissClassicTVSee all my reviews

This is a depressing movie, but I found David Janssen to be riveting. I couldn't take my eyes off him. He looks haunted throughout the movie. He's shot someone at the beginning of the movie, but the viewer is firmly on his side, hoping for a good outcome for him.

Somewhat early in the movie there's a scene where he shoots pool. He's quite good.

Most of the movie features the relationship between Janssen's wealthy businessman character and Kotto's cabbie. Janssen's intensity completely carries the movie.

David Janssen was such a great talent. It's too bad we didn't get 30 more years of screen time with him.
