How Could They Not Mention Alien Nation?
In the New York Times obituary for James Caan, who died at age 82, they made no mention of his work with Mandy Patinkin on Rockne O’Bannon’s amazing SF/Cop Buddy film.
Wonderful performances from Caan and Patinkin for the leads, and Terrence Stamp is marvelously evil as their nemisis.
This is a major omission.
In any case, this man was one hell of an actor, and if you want to sample his work, apart from the obvious (The Godfather), I would also recommend Alien Nation, and Rollerball, which seemed a bit far fetched when it came out in 1975, but seems prophetic now.
