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!
42 years later … “Busting”still has no expiration date ……..
Talk about a movie that has aged well, despite being over four decades old. There is so much going on, and Elliot Gould and Robert Blake play off each other so well, I didn’t even notice, or for that fact care, that they drive 70s “land yachts”, and dress “mod”. “Busting” is greatly enhanced by our two rogue vice cops constant sarcasm and wise cracking, mostly at Allen Garfield’s expense. I would have to say that Gould’s performance here easily equals his terrific acting in “The Silent Partner”. The film is full of interesting characters, with Michael Lerner as a porno shop owner the standout. As buddy cop movies go, “Busting” is one of the best. – MERK
