Awarded the 1981 N.Y. Film Critic's Award for Best Director, Oscar-nominated, and one of that year's ten-best films, Rex Reed calls this "a great film indeed that sends you out of the cinema wasted, charged, and demanding answers." With Jerry Orbach ("Law & Order"), Lindsay Crouse ("Places in the Heart") and Bob Balaban ("Absence of Malice").
