Joseph Bottoms is one really great actor! I have never seen him before, so I shouldn’t be so brash, but in this he has everything — verve, imagination, physical and emotional daring, looks, and just the shot of nastiness the part requires. It is a lesson in the finest acting to see him sink his great big white teeth into this role and shake it from side to side with a just delight. It’s a kind of threesome road picture of the kind we have seen before and always find hospitable. He is the rake. Grigor Taylor, the other boy is the quieter one. And Judy Davis in her first picture, and unrecognizably young, is the girl who tags along. She’s darling. So is the film.
