Three squares on the way to a ball game. Car trouble. A deserted garage. "Hey,anybody there?" A cut telephone chord. "The sooner we get out of here the better I'll feel".
We've been here before. We're in B territory again. This one's reputation is deserved though. The cast is small,the set is tight,it never opens out,there's no real attempt at backstory or motivation or any of that soft stuff,just a guy,a girl,a gun and a wrong turn.
And this guy is never going to play a wet dream president,Sissy Spacek would not look twice at him,no cop is going to ask him for his autograph,he just giggles and giggles and waves his gun. He knows how it's going to end,so do you but you stick with it. And of course,you are wrong. And that's what seperates this from the pack.
A small masterpiece,beautifully shot,beautifully packaged,highly recommended.
