Another Look at The Laughing Policeman (***) and serial killer “procedurals” in the early 1970’s

Police “procedurals” then and now spend much of their time ignoring rules, then thanking those who advised them on police work.

Another (Ironic) look: Blind Fury (**) is a missed opportunity

I used to think I wanted to own this film. Now I feel bad just taking the time watching it on Prime Video. I feel worse for Hauer than anything. He’s got the talent to put more into this film than he does. Given the goofball history of the Zatoichi films of the 50’s through the 70’s, some amount of the silliness is expected. They could have done better by the character though, for sure.
