The Last of the Independents

Charley Varrick (1973)
Dir - Don Siegel
Weird Wednesday

I always thought Walter Matthau was awesome, as is exemplified perfectly in this film. A sympathetic bad guy on the run from the likes of Joe Don Baker and John Vernon. Some great chase scenes and some smart criminal activity from Matthau when he knows what is coming. This is the kind of 70s crime film you want to see. 110 minutes flies by and leaves you wanting more.
