The Big Fix

Film, Thrillers
Much underrated wry thriller with a nice sense of its own scale and an occasionally tough way with eccentricity, in which Dreyfuss' sort-of-private-eye ('a would-be marxist gumshoe') finds nostalgia for an activist past turning sour as an unlikely rightist backlash violently hits a Californian gubernatorial election campaign, and his counter-culture quipping has to be put on hold. A more characteristically quirky work from the oddball Kagan than The Chosen.
