Damn Good 70s Cop Flick!
I caught part of this 1973 flick one late night on TNT. I was intrigued because it was supposed to be Peter Hyams’ first theatrical effort. So I went out and bought a copy on VHS. At first this film may not seem much. Just an updated version of the old police procedurals from the 1940s and 50s. But after a couple more viewings I was hooked. There’s a certain indescribable quality to it (see Walter Hill’s “The Driver” and you’ll know what I mean). A hang-dog, left coast version of the French Connection. Very laid back, but deadly serious. The viewer feels the same frustrations the Gould-Blake teams feels in the up-hill struggle to rid their beat of society’s scum. The duo risks life, limb, and personal and professional humiliation trying to nail the vile crime boss and galvanize indifferent peers and supervisors. Brisk dialogue, thoughtful direction, excellent photography by Earl Rath, sleazy LA locales and a fine cast make this forgotten film a winner. Give it a try!
Great seventies cop thriller
Peter Hyams’ debut movie is a forgotten movie jewel from 1973. It’s a typical early seventies cop and action thriller about two police officers (Elliott Gould and Robert Blake) hunting a mafia boss and finding out that the villain is co-operating with police officials.
Blake and Gould (who is incredibly “groovy” looking) are giving fine performances in this dirty little picture. They are doing raids in whore houses and gay bars, they are beaten up by gangsters and often use their guns to get what they want. Their characters are not far away from those of Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider in “French Connection” which has clearly influenced the settings, tempo and plot of this movie.
Some high points of “Busting” next to the main actors are the funky, Lalo-Schifrin-style sound track and a big showdown between the cops and a bunch of gangsters in a shopping mall battered with people. You can alos find those certain hints of conspiracies and paranoia all over this movie that became benchmarks for later Peter Hyams films such as “Capricorn One”, “Outland”, or “Star Chamber”. Watch this incredible seventies movie, you won’t regret it!
