Little Murders (1971) | Blu-ray release – Alan Arkin’s bitter black comedy starring Elliott Gould

Little Murders

From Powerhouse Films/Indicator comes the UK Blu-ray release of Little Murders

Scripted from a play by cartoonist Jules Feiffer, this savage black comedy presents a devastatingly grim picture of life in New York City. Elliott Gould is at the peak of his dishevelled post-M*A*S*H powers as a photographer whose life is transformed when he marries optimistic Marcia Rodd, who is determined to save him amidst the series of random muggings, sniper shootings, garbage strikes and total blackouts that are ravaging the city. Donald Sutherland as a trendy priest, and Alan Arkin as a kooky cop, are also part of the bitter brew.
