The acting and story line definitely shows its age. A very 60-70's movie: braless women, lecherous men, promiscuity, no limits, no boundaries. Certainly give insight into how some men today think. I did not finish the movie. Someone studying sociology or film studies would get more out of it.

Still disturbing to watch. The rape scene is so graphic and erotic there is no way that this movie would be made by a major studio today. But in 1971 Hollywood was experiencing an auteur zenith. In any event, Peckinpah's Hobbesian view of life -- nasty, brutish & short -- is here applied to married life.
