This underrated gem of a picture stands out because Fred Williamson plays a decorated war hero back from Vietnam who is homeless and can't find a job. You really feel bad for his humiliating situation, and the incredible music in the movie brings out this feeling even more. There's a cameo with Elliott Gould that's funny enough to lighten things up for a couple minutes. But the focus of the plot is on two Italian families in Los Angeles, with Stuart Whitman playing one of the Racconi family members trying to hire Johnny Barrows to be their hit man. In addition to WIlliamson's outstanding performance and the memorable score, this film abounds with cool cars, clothes, and all the nostalgia of the 1970s. And it's all in widescreen, directly from Fred Williamson's private collection. Don't miss the audio commentary with the star/director himself. Not only is he humorous and entertaining, but you see what his thought process was behind his many intriguing camera shots and transitions.
