Marathon Man (1976)

(On TV, April 2002) Long, but good, but looong thriller that is far simpler than you might expect if you strip away all the convoluted mechanics to set up the end situation. There are some memorable moments. (Can you still go to the dentist without thinking of this film?) Good usage of New York scenery. Effective villains. Maybe a bit too manipulative. Still, a good piece. Hasn’t aged very well, though.
