Thresher Chase a Repeat of "Prime Cut"
3 January 2000 | by alicecbrSee all my reviews

Watch the two movies together for an example of a good film and a bad one with the same themes. No one is good in this one, and that goes for the acting as well as the morality. The family is depraved and watching Lee Marvin go through his 'take the illegal money, eye the women, escape the pursuers' bit is incredibly boring.

Skip it. A real waste of film, despite the VanGogh beauty of the golden fields of southern France.
