[Masters of Carpentry] Monthly Feature #9: Better Late Than Never (1979)

"The first hour is a very different movie than the last half hour. The last half hour just kinda comes out of nowhere, where it's like suddenly they're escaping, and stealing a train, and going cross-country, and breaking through police blockades, and almost colliding with another train, and there's heart attacks and finding the ghost town, and pathos. It's just such a suddenly weird third act."

"Yeah, it becomes Easy Rider, and then the last five minutes just undoes all of that. It's like the end of an A-Team episode, where you're like 'Here we go, again!' "
