Critic Reviews for Pressure Point
This was Bobby Darin's fourth film and perhaps the best in his brief career.
Audience Reviews for Pressure Point
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.
Anything that makes the sense of storytelling and concepts seem dated is completely, utterly saved by the tumultuous dynamic between Poitier and Darin's characters. Awesome performances by them both.
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.
