A great neo-noir. Love how humorless and focused Cosby and Culp are especially in the first half-no one liners...they act like real people doing a job. One of the bleaker films in this genre during this decade.
A great film noir amongst the flurry of seventies noirs ("Chinatown", "Night Moves", "Farewell My Lovely", "Cockfighter", "Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia", "Cutter's Way", "Who'll Stop The Rain?"), "Hickey And Boggs" is a story of existential despair and futility. Robert Culp and Bill Cosby transcend their place in entertainment history with this bleak private eye drama. Not to be missed.
