The Package (1989), the Gene Hackman-Tommy Lee Jones thriller once touted on this Forum for its script resemblances to the JFK assassination, is now viewable on YouTube. If anyone sees revelation and not ho-hum exploitation, let me know:


Dear David,

You're right. It's a shameless exploitation film.

And I enjoyed it immensely.

From the same Hackman period, I like Under Fire and Target better, and No Way Out (co-starring Costner) best of all as a conspiracy thriller. I found Package's visual quotes from the superior French Connection a sad harbinger of the decline of thriller-making, with Hackman the exploited one therein. But I digress.
