    Has some suitably grimy NJ locations early on, but is otherwise unwatchable. Slots in below The Split as the worst of the Richard Stark adaptations. Is perhaps less faithful to the novels than Made in USA.

    If you ever wanted to watch C. Thomas Howell brawl with Ed Lauter on the wing of a biplane this is the movie for you.

    No Escape


    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.

    Young Mr. Lincoln


    “Suppose some truant good fairy were to ask me … ‘Is there some American film you’d like me to make you the author of – with a wave of my wand?’ I would not hesitate to accept the offer, and I would at once name the film that I wish I had made. It would be Young Mr. Lincoln directed by John Ford.” -Sergei Eisenstein
