Straight Time – Ep07

Take Dustin Hoffman in his 1970’s prime, mix him with some nitro glycerin (stir gently) and you’ve got Max Dembo, in the classic crime drama Straight Time. Brilliantly directed by Ulu Grosbard, this movie set the gold standard for all heist movies to follow. In it Hoffman delivers his most explosive performance ever as an ex-con trying to go straight. It also stars the great Harry Dean Stanton at his naturalistic best. And if that’s not enough it includes, a very young Gary Busey, a very young Theresa Russell and a very young Cathy Bates. What else do you need? Grab your stop watch, shotgun, heavy gloves, hammer & goggles and get ready to grab some cash & jewelry! It’s there for the taking.
