150 from the 70's: My Fave Films From The 1970's (150 movies items)

"At a time when Dustin Hoffman was at his height in terms of popularity & in the eyes of film critics, comes along one his least known/overlooked pictures, Straight Time. A story about a thief who, after a stint in the joint, tries to live a life outside of crime. But soon finds that the path on the straight and narrow is often wide with crooks and crinkles. Making those bad habits that die hard even harder to die. "

" If you are a Dustin Hoffman fan, you owe it to yourself to see this movie. It is a brilliant character study film that has his most overlooked performance in his career."

"November 2 "You know what I'd like to do... Why don't you run me by that hotel we'll check it out." "Yeah, well I'll drive you out there but I'm not gonna rob it for you, you have to do that yourself. I got stomach trouble... no guts." This was a very amazing character study film. I was very interested in this film the second it started and Dustin Hoffman gives one of his most overlooked performances in his career. This film reminded me that I need to update my list of overlooked films."

"26/06/2013 Max Dembo (Dustin Hoffman) pääsee ehdonalaiseen ja vaikka kuinka hän koittaa pysyä lainkuuliaisena kansalaisena, pian hänet löydetäänkin suunnittelemassa laittoman pokeripöydän ryöstöä. Elämäntaparikollisen toivoton paranemisprosessi on apeaa katseltavaa, mutta muuten synkänpuhuvaan elokuvaan löytyy omat riemuhetkensä Maxin kamppaillessa ehdonalaisvalvojaansa vastaan. Hoffman on ehdottomasti yksi ikuisista suosikeistani Ameriikan Yhdysvalloista ja onhan Harry Dean S"
