Jules Feiffer’s black farce about the random violence, emotional and physical, of life in New York City was filmed in 1971 by Alan Arkin, who (as in so many of his performances) has trouble distinguishing between funny ha-ha and funny peculiar. Scenes that begin harrowingly on target dissipate into the imponderable and plain weird, though there are some devastating moments and an impressive performance by Marcia Rodd as the urban survivalist who traps befuddled photographer Elliott Gould into marriage. With Elizabeth Wilson, Vincent Gardenia, Donald Sutherland, Lou Jacobi, and Arkin in an eerie bit as a paranoid cop.
