News & Interviews for Prime Cut
Critic Reviews for Prime Cut
Prime Cut is very different from the usual gangster movie; it's put together almost like a comic strip, with all of the good and bad things that implies, and the Marvin character has more in common with superheroes than with mobsters.
A much greater fault is the way the film constantly pulls its punches; half of the film's climaxes don't feel quite right because they're not sufficiently climactic.
A imbecilidade deste filme pode ser resumida pela ridícula cena de perseguição envolvendo uma ceifadeira. Não vale nem como curiosidade por ter marcado a estréia de Spacek no cinema.
Audience Reviews for Prime Cut
Violent both in action and intention. Exposing some of the seamy underbelly of the seemingly docile Midwest. Fantastic acting by Marvin, Hackman and a very young Sissy Spacek. The beginning is not for the squeamish.
Sissy Spacek made her film debut in this sleazy but energetic crime thriller about big-times gangsters and the slaughterhouse they use to convert their enemies into sausage is a highly entertaining gangster film with co-stars Lee Marvin and Gene Hackman. Michael Ritchie takes iconic actors like Marvin and Hackman, who only have to be visible to make an effect. He puts in lots of destruction of property, and neo-Nazi blond bad boys falling by the score. There's shotguns and submachine guns and carnivorous farm equipment and 18-wheel trucks and all sorts of unlikely weapons. And the usual movie dichotomy of country good, city bad is stood on its head, with agriculture fairs and cornfields and sunflower fields as dangerous to life and limb as you could hope for (paging Alfred Hitchcock!). And young Spacek looked so beautiful and hot in her nudity scenes. Whooo!
This movie made me kinda sick. Nothing like women being sold like meat to make you feel all good inside.
