...a sporadically intriguing yet pervasively uneven (and dated) piece of work.
It's far from perfect, but it's often moving (and frequently gorgeous).
One of the great unsung films of the 1970s. It's so good you come away wishing James William Guercio had done more films.
Weird little anti-hero tale
James William Guercio was the producer of Chicago albums in the Seventies, and this is his only directorial effort.
Electra Glide in Blue was a bad title, but everything else about it is pretty stellar. Performances are top knotch all round, the script taught and tight, and the cinematography... Did I mention it's shot by Conrad Hall?
Electra Glide In Blue is a character study of an earnest and honest man doing America's second most unpopular job. Fans of early 1970s drive-in cinema, edgy action flicks will dig this picture. Some scenes are unforgettable, while others come off as amateurish, including the dialogue. In terms of structure and plot, there are plenty of similarities to "Easy Rider." Instead of a pair of hippies, it's John Wintergreen (Robert Blake) and his bike-riding cop partner "Zipper" Davis (Billy Green Bush on the edge of irritating), who happens to be a bit more sadistic and corrupt.
1970's classic film as little motorcycle cop with big simple heart dreams of being a homicide detective in a land where prejudice, cynicism, and just-looking-out-for-number-one-ism rules. A great character study, and unlike FORREST GUMP, it doesn't go for an easy happy-by-numbers ending.
Probably the most underrated movie of the 70s. Picture a right wing Easy Rider told from a pious cop's point of view and you're getting warm. Incredible cinematography by Conrad Hall.
