Fuzz

Fuzz has an excellent screenplay by Evan Hunter, from his 87th Precinct series written under the name Ed McBain. The basic plot line is a search for a mysterious meticulous bomber, played by Yul Brynner, who keeps killing local officials. The search is conducted against a back-drop of an urban neighborhood police station where the cops are as humanized as those under arrest or suspicion.

The basic plot line is a search for a mysterious meticulous bomber, played by Yul Brynner, who keeps killing local officials. The search is conducted against a back-drop of an urban neighborhood police station where the cops are as humanized as those under arrest or suspicion.

The assorted people involved innocently or criminally with the police are neither patronized middle-class nor anointed low-life.

There is compassion in the treatment of all characters while at the same time their foibles are milked for both laughs and occasionally chilling reality.

Burt Reynolds is very good, Jack Weston and James McEachin are excellent, and Tom Skerritt is outstanding as the principal quartet of detectives.
