Pacing and dialog from the mid-'70s (ugh), but, ultimately, well worth it for the spectacular critique of "America stuck in a slump." Hmm...why does that sound so familiar...? Lots of insight into where we've come from, too. Given that it won 3 acting Oscars (1 of 2 films ever to do so), it obviously struck a chord with Americans in 1976. If you can get through the first half hour, you're golden.
