Yet another film from my 500>400 list. It probably needs a rewatch, as I saw it years ago, and remember being most impressed by the performances

I enjoyed it. Great performances by the actor playing the title character as well as a few others 8/10

Agreed on the performances. Stamp was excellent, and this was probably my favorite role for Robert Ryan--he really sells his character in this one, albeit a bit melodramatically.
