Wife finds out (after he is killed in car/pedestrian accident) that her husband of 15 years had a gay lover for 7 years. She of course is devastated by his death and decides to investigate. It is quite a moving story -one of love and acceptance. She soon develops a friendship with her husband's ex lover Michele and his and Massimo's circle of gay and transgendered friends, including a Turkish immigrant and a prostitute It is a little to soapy for me but still a good story. I don't watch a lot of gay movies but this is pretty compelling film. three or four stars.

Yeah, I only gave it two and a half stars, but that's literally an oscar-caliber rating for the type of movies he made back then. It's a hard-nosed vengeance/vigilante pic in the vein of 'Death Wish'. I haven't seen this movie since it first came out on VHS lo so many years ago, but it was pretty good for the type of movie he was making at the time. Wilson stars as a lawyer seeking revenge for his family's killing, so he goes out at night and dishes out justice kickboxing style. In retrospect, the plot kind of reminds me of Corey Yuen's 1986 HK flick 'Righting Wrongs,' starring Yuen Biao and Cynthia Rothrock, which deals with similar themes with a lawyer kickboxing his way to vengeance. The police and media have dubbed him the "karate man,"and even now that still cracks me up. I always thought that line was funny he speaks in one scene: "I''m not the karate man!" Can you imagine using that in everyday conversation @ inappropriate times? I could. I'm not sure how easy this movie is to track down, but I think if you're a big Wilson guy (or gal), it'd be well worth it.

(gb) wrote: The film itself is only pretty good - very interesting story and characters that one really feels for, but Albert Finney is AMAZING in this movie. The movie really is pretty heavy....it becomes apparent pretty early on that things are going from bad to worse......but this is such an interesting film....such a great mixture of a snap shot of people's lives and relationships and a snapshot of the political and cultural world that they are dealing with at the moment.
(us) wrote: This is another boring slasher that actually had a good premise and could have been so much better. It had flahses of brilliance, but they were few and far between. The one thing that was great though was the mask, but they really didn't actually show the killer and the mask very often at all, as they should have. This is also another movie with just far to build-up that leads to practically nothing. I'm all for suspense, but this isn't suspense, it just seems pointless and time-wasting. I see a lot of great reviews for this movie, but I don't see it up there with a lot of other similar slasher films of the '80s at all. It's original, I'll give it that, but they don't work with that originality enough, the thrown together twist ending being an example of that. That ending really just seemed simple like the type of twist just put in there for the sake of a twist and not because it actually made sense. I actually had a few other twists that would have worked so much better that I thought they should have went with, bastards should have traveled forward in time and listened to my ideas, dammit! lol.
