DIRECTOR: BURT REYNOLDS
CAST: BURT REYNOLDS, VITTORIO GASSMAN, CHARLES DURNING, BERNIE CASEY
The best of Reynolds’s directorial efforts stars Burt as the eponymous Sharky, a hot-dog Atlanta cop who’s been busted down to the vice-squad, but hasn’t taken his eye off of big game: Vittorio Gassman’s suave criminal kingpin. Shooting the shit with Charles Durning, Brian Keith, and Bernie Casey, Reynolds shows a real feel for raucous station house camaraderie, while he gets plenty of help from ace DP William Fraker and stuntman Dar Robinson, taking a swan dive for the record books.
Our screenings of Sharky's Machine have been cancelled due to issues with the print.
