Prime Cut Dirigido por Michael Ritchie
Prime Cut isn’t steeped in the self-loathing that marred some other American movies of the era. Outrage wasn’t Ritchie’s bag. This sly little genre picture takes its cue from Lee Marvin’s decision to play a mob soldier as deadpan put-on artist.

There’s little tension to anything that happens. Most of the film’s scenes are competently orchestrated on their own terms, but appear to exist in isolation, detached from every other surrounding moment. Prime Cut lacks the rude, propulsive intensity of Marvin’s best vehicles.

Meat is the metaphor, approved by Eisenstein and later seconded by Wiseman: Gangsters are thrown into the sausage grinder, nymphettes are doped up and kept in sow pens. Bucolic tyranny, barnyard capitalism… This enchantingly perverse fairy-tale builds toward a sunflower meadow out of Van Gogh, and the image of machismo reduced to a psychotically stabbing wiener.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Prime Cut

    1970s New Hollywood meat grinder with Lee Marvin, Gene Hackman and the film debut of Sissy Spacek. Solid entertainment. 5 stars for the scene of Marvin and Spacek getting chased by a combine in a wheat field. 4++

  • Greg S.'s rating of the film Prime Cut

    Never have my prior ideas about a film been so off kilter. On paper sounds like a routine crime pic unfolds in very surreal fashion. Ritchie makes litle slices of Midwestern Americana look very strange under a different lense. And the whole criminal world ends up feeling like something another planet. There's segments that had me thinking this is what a Bunuel action film would feel like. This movie is fuckin great!

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Prime Cut

    What a UFO! A delirious opening sequence with a score by Lalo Schifrin, numerous B-movies elements like the combine harvester scene, a slice of documentary mood with a fabulous action scene while a real Kansas thunderstorm is threatening, surreal moments like the scene at the fair or Sissy Spacek's diner at the palace. That's the cinema I like. Masterpiece.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Prime Cut

    Prime Cut has countless good quotes, ideas, moments, and scenes, even if the story doesn't quite cohere for momentum or emotion. That's not to say it's incoherent, but instead, it feels choppy, like an escalation of glorious set-pieces out of a comic book. It reminds me of Nolan’s later Dark Knight with that. And 2 of the coolest, tough guy Hollywood actors ever squaring off (Lee Marvin/Gene Hackman) is great, too.

  • J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Prime Cut

    Yeah. Lee Marvin, as I love him, in a 'cooler-than-cool', 'cold-as-ice' mode! Although a free-lance ganster, hitman & criminal of the worst kind, he turns out having more in common with a 'noble knight' than anything else. This is a perverse & bizzare gangster movie about contempt, drugs, prostitution & tough guys. Tense, thrill & action guaranteed!

  • Sean's rating of the film Prime Cut

    Gerat 70's classic starring two of the best actors ever to grace the screen, Hackman and Marvin own. Gritty and somewhat violent (for it's time, yeah). Some great moments and a decent story, Michael Ritchie deserves some credit here for sure.

  • Droog811's rating of the film Prime Cut

    3 1/2 stars actually. Great opening sequence! Lee Marvin is excellent as a Mob enforcer sent from Chicago to Kansas City to make an example of Meat Baron/Sex trade bad guy Mary Anne (?) played by Gene Hackman in this gritty, crime movie . A very young Sissy Spacek is saved by Marvin early in the film and tags along for all the fun. Fantastic gun fight at the end ties everything up nicely.

  • thivai abhor's rating of the film Prime Cut

    More like a 3 1/2 - A few interesting visual flourishes (the gun fight in a horizon spanning sunflower field -- yes!), gritty no-nonsense realistic action, overcomes some clunky aspects.... very enjoyable and recommended!
