If this doesn't turn you against going to the dentist, nothing will. Terrifying, pulsating film w/Hoffman.

Scheider looks great as the well-dressed cool guy and Olivier turns in his most notoriously frightening performance.

Do acidente de carro que abre a história ao confronto final em uma estação de esgoto, o filme jamais consegue ser convincente; e a única cena realmente eficaz do longa é aquela ambientada num bairro judeu.
| Original Score: 2/5

Although best-known for its infamous "Is it safe?" sequence, Marathon Man is a whole lot better than just one horrific scene.

Decent thriller about purloined diamonds and nazi war criminals. The interrogation scene will make you cringe.

Marathon Man desperately yearns for acceptance among the canon of socially important, gritty, subversive 1970s 'New School' films.

...not a genuinely convincing thriller, but one that makes us think we're seeing something more important than it is because of the virtues of its participants.
| Original Score: 6/10
