One of Robert Duvall's best and least well-known performances. Great flick.
Duvall, Duvall and Duvall
Duvall is a god.
Robert Duvall is incredible. The rest of the film, not so much.
Robert Duvall at his Duvalliest and it's scary how much Blythe Danner in this resembles Gwenyth Paltrow in the present day.
Interesting how the lead alternates from being very likable to profoundly unlikable throughout the movie. Really keeps you on your toes.
