Lithgow is awesome as master criminal Earl Blake. A 'bad dude' who spectacularly breaks out of a maximum-security jail. His mission: to deconstruct the life of the cop who jailed him. What follows is one of the most energetic movies I've ever seen. The camera never stays still and is constantly gliding around the actors, twisting and turning and framing at bizarre angles. Watch out for a beautifully shot sequence in which Blake has the cop held hostage, drugs him and then pays for a prostitute to have sex with him - there is some fantastic lighting here, and great acting. A deadpan face, hilarious one-liners and the coolest haircut - it can only be Lithgow doing what he does best: playing a bad guy.
