DUSTIN HOFFMAN IS TRYING TO DO SOME "STRAIGHT TIME" BUT A PESKY PAROLE OFFICER IS..THE HORROR!

I first saw this gem of a film in 2010 and by the time credits rolled it was already an instant favorite. 
Dustin Hoffman, one of the greatest actors to ever walk the face of this godforsaken planet, absolutely kills it in his role as the life-er convict. Pre-motorcycle crash Gary Busey, Harry Dean
Stanton on all 8 cylinders as a fellow bank robber, music by David Shire, need I say more? How bout M Emmit Walsh in one of his most scripted roles ever as the sharp parole officer, this flick ROCKS! Using my Pinewoods Rating System I give Straight Time Three & 1/2 Pinewoods...The Horror!!

Straight Time (1978)

After the flurry of activity that followed his star-making performance in The Graduate (1967), Dustin Hoffman became incredibly selective in the '70s and '80s, sometimes letting years pass between projects. Not coincidentally, his commitment to the parts he actually took was incredible, manifesting as deep involvement with story development and meticulous research into the lifestyles of his characters.

Retro Reviews: STRAIGHT TIME (1978)

This underappreciated nugget from the '70s is a must-see for fans of Dustin Hoffman, author Edward Bunker and Quentin Tarantino. Smack in between The Graduate and on Dustin Hoffman's filmography is this under-seen gem from 1978, which seems to have slipped through the cracks despite a great cast and a surprising but undeniable connection to the Tarantinoverse.

We recently captured this secret video of Ed from Ed's Attic getting ready to board a plane at LAX.....
....THE HORROR!!
