Movie Info

After a couple of major studio flops, Peter Bogdanovich returned to his 1960s filmmaking roots with this Roger Corman-produced low budget film. Easygoing expatriate Jack Flowers (Ben Gazzara) makes his living in early-1970s Singapore legally and illegally looking after the needs of American and British businessmen, such as the mild-mannered William Leigh (Denholm Elliott). With his gift for putting clients and girls at ease, Jack opens a successful brothel, but pressure from local mobsters soon

If Saint Jack is not another complete embarrassment for Bogdanovich, it nonetheless reveals his deficiencies as a film maker.

Well crafted, finely acted, and conjures up a positively intriguing milieu.

One wishes it were more outrageous and less knowing.

The story is told in too meandering a style and the many well-acted characterizations never mesh together.

A surprisingly fine and forceful character study.

Gripping drama, vivid view of Singapore.

Saint Jack offers a subtle study of cultural tensions and misunderstandings.

Certainly one of The Last Picture Show's director's better efforts, he is still searching for the project with which he may hit the jackpot again.

Audience Reviews for Saint Jack

Gazarra is amazing; Muller as DP; a story about capitalism; friendships are business here, maybe real in passing; Jack stays true to himself
