Interesting in our current climate of "fake news" and the "Me Too" movement. No chemistry between Newman and Field, bad score. Wilfred Brimley is the only bright light in this film.

Politicians and lawless cops in high places depicted in this movie destroying the character of a person guilty of nothing criminal by using the all-too-willing news media as a club. A man gets his legitimate business demolished, a woman suicides because the story she told to clear the 'investigated innocent' is splashed across the front pages of newspapers. A worthy movie with a message usually forgotten by the idiot newswatchers who make it all possible.

When self-serving egotistical corrupt vagabonds crusade in the name of justice & under the cover of the law, many innocent bystanders on the way of the lawless vagabonds pay a heavy price,, just for being around the neighborhood.

Watching this fascinating movie & THE VINDICATED, it makes you wonder, how many innocent people are SELECTED to be sacrificial-lamb for INJUSTICE, disguised under law & order?

Great sobering movie,,,

No wonder everything is NOT the way it looks.
