"12.2. 2021 An officious motorbike cop meets all kinds of people in his job and often ends up searching for troubles from wrong places. "Electra Glide in Blue" is a cult film from the very productive and creative era of American film industry. It's a little bit like "Taxi Driver" with a motorbike cop. The film depicts many different levels of American society but the most fascinating thing about the film is how it exposes the connection between police corruption and cycle of violence."

"17.9. Muistan, kuinka Electra Glide in Blue oli joskus kymmenisen vuotta sitten miitissä koffipäissään ja kollektiivisessa tyytyväisyysmyhäilyssä jotain aikamoisen tunnamilonoffia kamaa. Uusintakatselulla elokuva ei antanut ihan niin paljoa, mutta se on kuitenkin hyvin mielenkiintoinen tutkielma poliisimoraalista ja siitä, miten ennakkoluulot ohjaavat käytöstä. Teemoissa on myös hieman samaa kuin Mallen Elevator to the Gallowsissa, eli pohdintaa siitä, onko oikein tuomita rikokseen"

"Tynkäkyttä halajaa etsiväksi motoristopartiohommistaan. Elisha Cook kärsii taas niin perkeleesti. Arizonan tiet ovat pitkiä ja pölyisiä. Chicago soittelee. Tynkäkytän ihannoimmalla junttietsivällä tainnee olla seksuaalisia patoumia. Erinomaisesti kuvattu, tunnelmallinen Electra Glide In Blue sisältää potentiaalin olla erinomainen genre-elokuva. Minulle se potentiaali hukataan liiaalliseen vakavuuteen."

"Underrated 70's cop thriller with Robert Blake as a motorcycle officer whose dream of becoming a detective comes true when a body is found in a shack. Working for a right-wing partner, the whole thing becomes a disillusion for him. Part thriller, part crushing of the American Dream, this superb film has a hard-hitting ending and a 7-minute tracking shot of a single road. A perfect finale to a near-perfect film."
