But the fact remains that the similarities ore obviously there travelling theme, the long stretches of beautiful scenery, the fantastically great photog- raphy, the sudden violence and Fonda's dream-like vision of America. The tiling that The Hired Hand lacks is the social con- nection: the kids are not likely to relate to this one the way they did to Easy Rider. Fonda's latest film is his personal ver- sion of ihe well-worn western movie idea, and it's not one that will receive the John Wayne seal of approval. The pace is dreadfully slow. Much of the movie is largely just a prelude to violence. You know it's coming, it's simply a matter of waiting for it. The script is bad, what there I is of it. Nobody says much i and Fonda particularly says nothing at all during the film's few really dramatic moments. The plot is sketchy and the acting generally is somewhere tliis side of second-rate. The photography by Vilmos Zsigmond is so good someone 1 should publish a collection of still photographs from the movie. Bruce Langhome, whose roots go deep into American folk mu- sic, has come up with the best movie soundtrack in years. The music is unusual, beautiful and fits every scene like a glove. The Hired Hand is showing at the Paramount Cinema. It has its good points, but don't go expecting the traditional shoot- cm-up.
