I consider this Woody's best dramatization of human nature. The cast's character personas show us realistic behaviors by their compromises, which serve their own interests, despite their moral and ethical education, this society's laws and countless role models thru out their lives. These personas can muse, pontificate, and pose, but in the reality of their choices, they, and we, still seek to avoid any payment for our crimes and misdemeanors. The professionalism of the actors was meticulous.
