Format: DVD
This is one of Hoffman's unique performances. The romance is believable, and touching, and the slip back into crime is gritty and inevitable. An authentic story about a con's trip back to prison.

Dustin Hoffman did a fine job portraying a low-life career thief who deserved nothing more than to be locked safely away in prison for 100 years. Goodness knows we don't need this type of criminal running free in society, stealing from honest people.

Welcome my friends to Bunker's universe. EUNUCS NOT ALLOWED. Great story, superb acting, a real crime-human drama. Existential, uplifting, and above all, life-right-in-your-face.

Format: VHS Tape
A grim, rigidly understated, crime flick, featuring Dustin Hoffman as a tight-lipped, ill-fated career criminal. His onscreen transition from a docile but dignified parolee to a cold, calculating man of action is surprising and effective; the second half of the film is a dry-mouthed slow-drip of adrenaline and dread. Plenty of gritty '70s ambiance, and strong performances by Harry Dean Stanton, Gary Busey and a young Kathy Bates. Theresa Russell is absorbing as the good girl gone wrong who has a puzzling attraction to a very dangerous man. Worth checking out.

A great film, what attracted me to it was the supporting cast. M. Emmet Walsh, Harry Dean Stanton, and Gary Busey give truly mesmerizing performances that make this film special. Dustin Hoffman is very good in the lead though I think he makes the character a little too sympathetic. The screenplay is good and it demands the supporting cast to be realistic and multifaceted. Another great M. Emmet Walsh performance is in the Coen brothers film Blood Simple, another great Harry Dean Stanton performance is in Rancho Deluxe (another film with great cast and script), and another great Gary Busey performance is in The Buddy Holly Story.

A very good hardboiled crime movie with an excellent cast -Harry Dean Stanton and M. Emmett Walsh are sublime as always- but an important fact for crime fiction fans not mentioned by other rewviewers is that this is the movie of the outstanding crime novel by Edward Bunker 'No Beast So Fierce'. Bunker of course was a real criminal before becoming a Hollywood advisor on films like 'Heat' (in which Jon Voight played a character who looked like Bunker) not to mention his acting role as Mr Blue in 'Reservoir Dogs'. If you've seen the film, read the book, if you've read the book, the film is well worth watching too. But where is the DVD edition ?
