    It begins promisingly.... But the film has no center, succumbs to drift, and gets away from Hackford. [03 Mar 1984]

    The story wanders unconvincingly and tediously into corporate law offices and big, splashy nightclubs. Still, Mr. Hackford has the documentary maker's eye for realistic detail, so it all looks right. [01 Mar 1984]

There is not much clarification what is the direction of the movie. And it does not stop there near the climax it gets us confused about who is the bad guy and whoever it is, is he really bad? And that is how it ends. Full Review »
