With its two peerless leads delivering riveting performances, this snapshot of the landscape of early 1970s America - external and internal - is a fine entry into the road movie canon.

It's strong on the details of itinerant life, and allows plotting to take a back seat to character.

Embora siga claramente o padrão estabelecido por obras como Easy Rider e Perdidos na Noite, isto não impede o filme de se estabelecer como um tocante estudo de personagens - especialmente graças à dinâmica brilhante entre Hackman e Pacino.
| Original Score: 5/5

Schatzberg throws away the more interesting implications in order to make emotional hay.

A compassionate buddy film about two lost, forgotten souls who still dream of a better life. A great, unsung film that all Hackman and Pacino fans must seek out.
| Original Score: 5/5

Memorable performances by Hackman and Pacino overcome a sometimes shaky script to create a touching story of a convincingly messy friendship.
