Segal is a bore with his juvenile Yiddish humor.
Karen Black had to really lower herself to co-star in this Jewish version of “panic in needle park.” Pacino is the standard this bomb is not even sub-standard.
Any one who has ever had any experience with heroin addiction or addicts will realize that this film has completely lost touch with reality.
