Man on the Roof

A so-so police thriller from Sweden (1976), directed by Bo Widerberg (Elvira Madigan) in a cold sweat of ideological confusion. Apart from the political quibbling about the role of the police, it's not nearly as competent as any given Clint Eastwood vehicle, and even Clint seems more genuinely ambiguous (silently but palpably) than Widerberg does here. Lots of talk and little action, but the subtitles, as usual, make good camouflage.
