Really good. A film that could've only been made in the 70s. Gritty and bleak, full of great character actors and unknowns, and with an odd sense of humour. Also worth watching for co-star Barry Brown, an intriguing man who died tragically before the decade was over.
One of the most underrated American masterpieces of the seventies. While not as radical in style or content as his peers (Scorsese, Coppola, etc.) Robert Benton put out some top rate work. And while it's hard to say that a 3-time Oscar winner has gone unappreciated, one can certainly make that argument for Benton.
