Better movie

10 years, 7 months ago at Nov 29 16:17
Movie works better with darker tone, but still retains the humour without seeming goofy. Only thing is at 86 minutes, the ending feels abrupt -- perhaps not quite as "70's" as the filmmakers hoped.

" This movie is the version the director wanted us to see. It still has the same great setup and structure but is a lot more depressing and realistic in it's payoff. This is the interesting alternate take without the Hollywood need for explosions and perfect endings - and the dog is really killed. It also lacks the satisfying killing of bad guys and Kris Kristofferson is gone replaced by an off-screen villainess with the voice of Sally Kellerman. A film much more open to interpretation at the end"
