I know when most people think of vigilantes, they think of the Punisher or Paul Kersey. But when I think of a vigilante, I think of human dick joke and friend of all children, Miles Long.
Parole Violators is truly top tier odd cinema. And I don't think enough appreciation has been paid to Pamela Bosley as police officer Tracy Dodd, Miles' officially designated love interest.
The things the script asks to say, and the way she chooses to say them, really elevates this whole thing into that upper strata. The exchange about the strength of birds. Her intense self-flagellation over cussing her child. Tracy's axe-based interrogation of Toos. This movie wouldn't be half as memorable without those moments (and so many more).
This one's just endlessly fun. And that it hasn't seen a proper Blu-ray release is a shame.
