...Genuine if loopy fun....A small, entertaining part of [the Mailer career]...
New York Times
Sep 18, 1987
Rating: 2.5/4 -- What is strange is that Tough Guys Don't Dance leaves me with such vivid memories of its times and places, its feelings and weathers, and yet leaves me so completely indifferent to its plot. Watching the film, I laughed a good deal. Full Review

The kind of lousy cinema that breathes and captures the imagination more than a conventionally good movie can. Full Review

There's no denying Mailer is a man with vision, and the eloquence to describe it. It's just that the vision is so troubling, so mean and raw and frightening. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Strange and self-indulgent, but oddly entertaining.
Fantastica Daily

The overkill is strangely compelling and Mailer's disregard for taste and convention ensure his film is a massive but spectacular and unmissable folly. Full Review

Norman Mailer's best film, adapted from his worst novel, shows a surprising amount of cinematic savvy and style. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on Norman Mailer's novel, this film is centered on the desperate attempts of a down-and-out writer to discover the strange truth behind a series of grisly, inexplicable mutilation murders.
