FINGERS (1978)

The 70's Rivers, Day 23

Fingers (1978)
Until this movie was mentioned in Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, I was only vaguely aware of its existence. Part Mean Streets, part Five Easy Pieces and part Oedipus Rex, if anyone asks you what a typical American character study film from the 70’s might look like, you may want to point your finger to Fingers.

The Toback River
Not a river I was really aware of, but The Toback River is...uh…I suddenly seem to be running out of river references. Maybe I’ll have better luck tomorrow.
