ReviewSource Eye Weekly
Review Straight Time is the story of convict Max Denbo (Dustin Hoffman, giving a performance so good you actually forget it's him -- this is the '70s, remember, when that was sorta the whole point of acting)...But though Hoffman's hypnotic emotional honesty carries most of the picture, the rest belongs to one of the world's all-time great supporting casts: Harry Dean Stanton (Max's robbery partner), Theresa Russell (his girlfriend), Gary Busey (an unreliable friend) and Kathy Bates (Busey's wife)...Grosbard winds Straight Time up to a conclusion as scrupulously human as it is viscerally satisfying. And he does it without resorting to the cinematic posturing that puts so many other films with a comparably heartfelt emphasis on character development, like Michael Mann's Heat or City On Fire -- or Reservoir Dogs, for that matter -- squarely in the realm of enjoyable fantasy...All of which makes Straight Time feel both real and cool -- and be real...real cool.

Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice ...packs a punch--thanks to the intense and well-modulated performance by Dustin Hoffman.
Jack Sommersby, Hoffman is atypically cast yet utterly sensational...the film, for the most part, is equally sensational.
