A pointless mess, and a hideous waste of the talents involved. Forsyth's worst movie wallows in masculine self-pity, never a pretty sight, and the excruciating narration- added on Warner Brothers' insistence - means that it isn't easy on the ear either. Cut by 40 minutes after disastrous previews, the released version looks like an exercise in personal therapy, and would have been better kept to himself. Williams and John Turturro are extremely annoying, and none of the actors emerges well. Never released in Britain.
