|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Nerdy Douglas blows his cool one morning, abandons his car in freeway traffic, and starts wandering L. A. on an increasingly violent odyssey--while Duvall, his last day before retiring from the police force, sniffs him out. Dead-on portrait of a disenfranchised, modern-day American who goes off the deep end. It's vivid, it's credible, it's extremely well acted... but what exactly is the point? Panavision.
