Una película dura y realista con una gran interpretación de George C. Scott, en la que se funden los apacibles paisajes del comienzo con el submundo oscuro de los bajos fondos.
Me ha gustado mucho, recomendada.

George C. Scott is a straight-laced, Midwestern business-owner with an innocent daughter who, on a church trip from hometown Grand Rapids, Michigan to Southern California, suddenly goes missing at an amusement park (Knotts Berry Farm, to be exact)...
Desperate, and with only a mellow lecture from the police, he hires a street-smart, quirky L.A. Private Eye, Peter Boyle, who literally proves that his client's runaway daughter is a porn actress, resulting in an awkward (and at this point, YouTube-famous) tantrum from Scott that few actors could get away with... But what's really intriguing, and even humorous without being distracting or contrived, is how Scott's Jake Van Dorn clashes with Boyle's gumshoe, symbolically named Andy Mast, their verbal dynamic exceeding intentional scene-stealer Leonard Gaines as a Los Angeles porn producer more talkative than "Easy Andy" from Schrader's original game-changing script of Martin Scorsese's masterpiece, TAXI DRIVER...
Back on track: After a few weeks, Jake returns to California and in doing so, wanders the streets, going from porn stores to massage-brothels backed by Jack Nitzsche's bluesy hard-rock score, practically bursting through the screen (eventually curbed by Neil Young's vulnerable acoustic 'Helpless' playing in a sex shop). The juxtaposition of the conservative loner lost in a modern Gomorrah is both mesmerizing and familiar ("Are YOU talkin' to me?!"). Eventually, the film loses some validity when our woebegone lead goes undercover as a would-be-producer, donning a bogus mustache and mirrored shades, weeding out young porn-actors in search of the one guy (Ryan O'Neal's failed getaway driver in THE DRIVER) in the only photo of his daughter, at work. Although this sequence is entertaining, providing a more conventional audience a break from the severe mainline, it somewhat trivializes the edgy and risque subject-at-hand, curtailing the essential danger of the quest, which had a sparse, unapologetic exploitation vibe beforehand.
The most pivotal and engrossing scenes occur during the third act, not involving sex or nudity, but what Schrader does best: one-on-one dialogue when Scott hires multi-talented prostitute, porn actress and window-room dancer Season Hubley to help him since Boyle, spending more time with skanks than finding clues, wasn't closing the deal fast enough for a desperate and determined father: Their conversations, ranging from Faith to Johnny Carson, Damnation to Bestiality, evokes peripheral comparisons of two completely different human beings – the Calvinist and the Whore, both alike in their aloof indifference to society, and sex – injecting a philosophical edge into the forefront, even surpassing Travis Bickle's similar-themed conversation with young hooker Iris (ala Robert DeNiro and Jodie Foster in, again, TAXI DRIVER). But some of the time, much like William Freidkin's CRUISING, we don't get as involved or firmly-planted inside the "perverse" underworld as we're led to believe...
The voyeuristic camera seems mounted to the wall during many scenes – often more seductive than revealing. And the finale, involving Scott beating up the villain, is way too typical, more befitting the following decade (when heavies were punched into swimming pools): It's the contrasting... and ultimately connecting... philosophical discussions, providing random breaks throughout an intentionally grueling road, that makes this semi-obscure Paul Schrader vehicle work: a late-70's counter-culture flick (with a few STAR WARS sightings) that needs a much bigger, far more dedicated cult following – hope this helps.
#1. I really wish I could put Season Hubley in some machine that would make her 20 again. And...
#2. This is really a very powerful and disturbing movie.
George C Scott is not at his absolute best in this, but I can't see anyone else playing the role of the tormented father desperately trying to find his runaway and newly turned porn actress teen daughter any better than he does.
I gave this 5 stars not because it's as good as a movie can be, but because it's that I like the more obscure, non-mainstream films like this. I'm not that big on; The Godfather - Jaws - The Graduate - Casino, & all that jazz (Including "All That Jazz''). So anyone with similar movie taste give this late 70's flick a shot.
The detective "Andy Mast", is hired to search for Jake's daughter. Actor Peter Boyle, is known for his performance as the campaign manager in "The Candidate" as well as many other noteworthy appearances. Admitting to an occasional roll in the gutter himself, Andy challenges Jake's moral high ground.
Here's the twist. In the pursuit of his daughter Jake finds himself the surrogate father of a whore "Niki", played by Season Hubley. Unwittingly trying to convert her while she tries to relate to him, they both must fail in the end.
Like many good movies, this one is almost a documentary. We get a glimpse inside the sleazy world of the sex industry. The porno wheel "Ramada", played by Leonard Gaines is brilliantly written and must have been fun for the actor to do. Directing and shooting a porn scene is very serious business. Just don't laugh so hard as to betray your embarrassment.
Schrader is a great writer, but competant director. He can certainly tell a tale, but while "Taxi Driver" is incredible, this is only a journeyman at work as director. It is a pretty interesting story, but a tad predictable. But don't let that deter you. It has enough twists and turns to keep you engaged. But my personal favorite is the vision of porno hell this picture paints of late 70s California. When looking at it through today's more jaded eyes, it is almost funny how much this world is caricatured in this movie. It is almost quaint in comparison to the slimy streets of LA portrayed in "8mm." The fashions and mannerisms of the characters in what was a much more innocent in some ways and much more dangerous world in others compared to today are fascinating. Check it out if you have less tamer sensibilities. You will probably like it.
