On a New York City subway, two young punks, Artie Connors (Martin Sheen) and Joe Ferrone (Tony Musante), take control of a car filled with passengers. Among other people, the train includes military officer Felix Teflinger (Beau Bridges) and tough-talking Bill Wilks (Ed McMahon), as well as quiet Jewish man Sam Beckerman (Jack Gilford), and his wife, Bertha (Thelma Ritter).

Critic Reviews for The Incident

Audience Reviews for The Incident

  • Jan 18, 2021
    For most of us, there are times in life when we must summon the courage to confront evil. When that calling goes unanswered the affects can be devastating. The Incident explores this theme. The film lacks depth as the characters are stereotypical and predictable. Nonetheless, this neo-noir is worth a look as the cast is stellar and the black and white cinematography sharp.

    Then newcomers Tony Musante and Martin Sheen are splendid as the couple of hedonists who give an unforgettable night in NYC subway to other, so called normal, but colourful variety of people only trying to get back home. This subway car carries more than just people, all the prejudices of race, sex, and economical condition,its air is stuffed by a sudden calamity, the tension is real, is palpable, it feels like a time bomb. If it had been directed by a household name in suspense/sociological dramas like Sidney Lumet, this would be more regarded nowadays for what it really is. A bold, tight, raw study of characters, about the apathy of city people, unable or simply uncaring to give each other a hand in moments of dispair.
