Best Seller Reviews

[Larry] Cohen cannily mixes social satire and genre twists in his clever screenplay of an unlikely friendship between two men with more history than they realize...

Ingenious big city cop film.

Best Seller wouldn't amount to much without Woods' foul, sadistic, gleefully profane edge.

Concentrate(s) on character interactions, shootouts, and chases, with things like plot and motivation taking a back seat. The slick, 1980s design does the rest.

A knockout. An intense, imaginative and exciting multilayered thriller. Woods and Dennehy are both outstanding. One of the unsung great movies of the 1980s.

One of the edgiest, most suspenseful thrillers of the 1980's....Woods is amazing

This Best Seller is a fabulous read...slick, taut, and involving. Woods and Dennehy make for an unconventional crime-chasing pair.

The two leads make Best Seller easy to sit through, but the wandering script by Larry Cohen and the dreary pacing offered by director John Flynn sink what could have been a can't-miss b-movie hoot.

The problem is that Best Seller is light on plot, real light. It doesn't have a compelling story at its center, only the original inspiration of the best-selling cop and the killer who wants to talk.
