Audio 2: Commentary by Director James William Guercio
A short Arizona motorcycle cop gets his wish and is promoted to Homicide following the mysterious murder of a hermit. He is forced to confront his illusions about himself and those around him in order to solve the case, eventually returning to solitude in the desert.
A cult movie from the 70’s, lives up to its status. Brilliantly photographed by Conrad Hall (All The Presidents Men, Butch And Sundance, Tequilla Sunrise) and acted by Robert Blake, (In Cold Blood)…this action/drama takes an epoch journey across the legendary Monument Valley, and the heart and soul of a lonely, over-achieving cop.
With humor, pathos and shortness of size, Robert Blake paints an unforgettable portrait of a motorcycle cop stuck in the heat of the desert, under a sun that fries the skin and sizzles the moral code of a cop on two wheels.
Some of the acting is over-baked, but not Blake … or the incredible photography that is as fresh today, as it was over 40 years ago!
