Plot: The hard times of poor white fighters in California are the background for this grim masterpiece by director John Huston. Stacy Keach is Tully, a down-on-his-luck alcoholic boxer living in a flophouse and earning money as a field worker while trying for a comeback. Jeff Bridges is Ernie, his 18-year-old admiring protege setting himself up for the same hard-luck life. Tully tries to pass his wisdom on to Ernie, attempting to give the kid the chances that he missed. Meanwhile, Tully also becomes involved with Oma (Susan Tyrell), a raging alcoholic who does nothing but drag him further down. Adapted from a Leonard Gardner novel, this sorely overlooked work brilliantly and unflinchingly portrays the lives of a group of born losers.
