Low-key and quiet, Cisco Pike is more or less a "forgotten" piece of 70's cinema, which is precisely why I jumped into the thing with both feet.

Action-packed thriller about a singing cowboy twice busted for dealing drugs trying to go straight. But, a bad cop (Gene Hackman) makes him deal once again. Exciting, dramatic, typical high-grade Hackman film... oh, wait, that's another movie. This one is Kristofferson, Karen Black, and Hackman with a bit part, trying to make a bad movie good in some way. But, they can't.

Great performances abound in this leisurely paced film about the end of the counterculture. Reminded me of the seventies films that strived for realism like Joe and The King of Marvin Gardens.
