visually the film looks like a lot of other 70s films, funny how each period has a particular look. it reminded me a bit of the conversation, though i probably preferred that film over this one. there’s a lot going on in this picture and none of it ever really feels like it fits together. it all makes sense from a plot perspective, but the pieces don’t feel as though they belong. you have hot diamonds, an ex-nazi on the loose, a secret government organization, one brother mixed up in all of this, the other gets unwittingly dragged into it, you have a history thesis on the use of tyranny in the united states, you have an opening road rage sequence, a developing relationship, etc. a rather odd picture. a bob evans production.
