Trivia

Jack Mitchell (Peter Boyle) works for a fictional company called Con-Amalgamate. Con-Amalgamate appeared in later films written by Peter Hyams. In Capricorn One (1978), Con-Amalgamate is the company whose "made-in-America screw-up" is allegedly responsible for the astronauts being grounded under false pretenses. In Outland (1981), Con-Amalgamate is the corporation that is mining the Jupiter moon Io. Ironically, Peter Boyle also stars in Outland (1981) as the corporate head of Io's branch of the corrupt Con-Amalgamate company. See more »

Unforgettable
13 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film when it first came out and was deeply moved because I identified with T.R. - I lived her story when I first left home, including making big mistakes about recognizing when I was merely being used by men I thought really liked me, and the awful places you end up living because you make barely a living wage, and the loneliness - all of it. Every thematic scene in this film could be my own life, with only the details changed. I've never seen another film that comes even close to capturing this experience.

Today when I was trying to find this film, I was shocked to discover how badly it was rated by critics at the time. I'm glad to see that people here respect the film and that most rate it very highly.

I'm going off now to see if I can get somewhere. A classic.
