Good argument for re-enlistment.
29 September 2002 | by yumatomSee all my reviews

I saw this in 1971 Los Angeles. It was supposed to be a look at the problems of a returning Marine Corps Viet Nam veteran. Jud doesn't seem to dream or to have benefitted from his military tour as he improbably stays in a depressing environment, symbolized by a barrack-like apartment building and dead end people. Does he have to stay there? A panning reviewer in the Los Angeles Times mused: `If there was ever a city you could get lost in, it's Los Angeles.' Clinical depression might have been going on here, perhaps in the people who made this movie. Truthfully, I would have hurried to the re-enlistment office.
