Description: In this grim little movie, Dustin Hoffman is featured as Max Dembo, an ex-con who finds that going straight is the most difficult job in the world. The early scenes of the film depicting his release from prison graphically convey his lostness and loneliness. His best friend's wife tells him to stay away from her husband. His parole officer (M. Emmet Walsh) throws him back in prison on empty drug charges when he realizes he can't run Max's life.

"5.2. Vähän samantyylistä menoa kuin Uncut Gemsissa, Dustin Hoffman pääsee vankilasta ja äkkiäkös sitä taas lipsutaan pahantekoon. Hyviä, eläytyväisiä roolisuorituksia ja myös tässä leffassa on viihdyttävää vauhdikkuuden tuntua.
