This was Bobby Darin's fourth film and perhaps the best in his brief career.
Audience Reviews for Pressure Point
A 'stylized' presentation of racism that says a little more about the enormous talents of Sidney Poitier than it does about the ignorance of inequality and bigotry.
*NOTE: Bobby Darin shines in a very unsympathetic role.
Not a bad film but a little too melodramatic. What makes this film interesting is how disturbing and dark the flashbacks are. Poitier is good as always but a suprise performance from Bobby Darin.
Only good for showing us that Darin can indeed act as well as sing and write. Poitier is always intense and ready to take the stage. I'm a fan of his but not so much here. I loved the flashbacks. The actor playing young "Patient" surprised me. I would have enjoyed watching a film about his time with his abusive parents more than Pressure Point.
