It took guts making this film in the time of the Love Generation. This is powerful stuff. I feel that anyone that has ever felt they might be a Pacifist should watch it. It makes your blood boil and may make you rethink your ideals. I have never been a violent man but could see myself in Hoffman's character and how a man could have to resort to violence in order to protect the ones I care about and my property. It gave me a lot to think about.
so fucking amazing, Dustin Hoffman won my heart
