One of my all time favorites.
Highly Overrated But Still Good
Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
It seems that this TV movie is s sort of pilot for a TV show. Not the kind of stuff that could have been shown in France anyway, despite the presence of the likes of Gig Young and John Savage. The latest was not known yet in France, before DEER HUNTER. Well this one: TURNING POINT OF JIM MALLOY, is not a bad drama, with some Horace McCoy's novels atmosphere from time to time. Young is pretty impressive, a Oscar winning scale performance and as good as the one he had in THEY SHOOT HORSES...The typical feature that Gilroy made or produced at his peak; offbeat and very intelligent.
