    Fifty-one years on, this feels disturbingly contemporary and prescient; we have not come very far as humans. 9 months 3 weeks ago

    Arthur "Bonnie & Clyde" Penn's 1966 escaped convict film The Chase defies expectation - and probably tests its audience's patience - by focusing on the effect the escape has on a small town where everyone knows everyone else (including the fugitive), rather than the manhunt. There are some great performances here from the likes of Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Angie Dickinson and Robert Duvall, several of them in smaller, early roles. The driving force behind the film is the mystery of just what "Bubber" Reeves' relationship to all these characters is, and whether or not he's actually guilty, but you don't always know that's what you're supposed to be thinking about so the film's point is at times muddled. Still, a good and textured ensemble movie worth a second look. 1 year 3 months ago

    Builds to a good climax, but takes too long to get there. The first two acts are, like so many play adaptations, are talky and not very cinematic. 6 months 4 weeks ago
