James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg star in a crime meller, laced with needless, boring sadism and dull, turnings-off sex angles.

Fox is a hood who finally gets the heat put on him; he hides in a house owned by Jagger, entrenched in freaky atmosphere with Pallenberg and Michele Breton. Fox finally is found out, there’s a phony sadness to the climax, and it all runs out after a too-long 102 minutes.

Randy Newman conducted the Jack Nitzsche music, overall a good sound. Co-director Nicolas Roeg’s lensing is tricky, the characters gamey, the dialog dull, performances flat, impact none.
