This was released in 1978? That's fucking outstanding.
I know public opinion at that time was no longer exactly naive or jingoistic, but still... I'm impressed.
There are flaws, as with any film, but I'll skip the wannabe film-student crap and get straight to the crux of it: it's unforgettable. I'd call it a bleak portrait of PTSD, but that's too simplistic.
End of Watch
I liked it. Caused mantears.
Killing Them Softly
Great cast. Wonderful performances. Great scenes.
Good dialogue. Bleak and very tense.
Unfortunately, the whole adds up to less than the sum of its parts.
It's ham-fisted and preachy and the soundtrack is amateurish ("Heroin" playing during a scene where people get high on heroin. /slow clap).
