One of the most ambiguous, neurotic, and disturbing of all American films receives a revelatory new restoration, with supplements that ably grapple with its chaos.

Inadvertently or not, the film brings to light the hypocrisy of many men who at the time purported to adopt the ‘New Man’ attitude, stripped of violent affirmations of masculinity but still failing to care about the women around them. Shockingly modern and rewarding, the film features one of Hoffman’s most nuanced and unsympathetic performances as a man at the centre of the story yet without a clue.

As the gang of local men close in on the couple’s house, signaling the start of the exploitative-fare soon to come, films like LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT are called to mind. The final third, after the attack on Hoffman’s wife, becomes a splintered assault of razor-sharp edits physically representing the inner stripping of the film’s main characters’ pretensions and artifice, resulting in maybe the most complex and thought-provoking probes on the true nature of violence and it’s aftermath.
