A loathsome, despicable movie encapsulating a loathsome, despicable view of humanity (and most other things as well) from a time that has bequeathed its errors, and little else, to future generations. So Dustin Hoffman wears some nice clothes: people were still doing that then. It doesn't make the movie worth watching.
"a loathsome, despicable view of humanity...," for sure, but alas, one that is seen repeated far too often in our lives. Seems to me to be a good reminder that we could and perhaps in some cases, should do better in our own real lives!
