    In order of merit:


    1.Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) ***1/2
    2.Bad Company (1972) ***1/2 - I've been meaning to rewatch this for years, as I recall being quite impressed by my sole viewing of it!
    3.The Late Show (1977) ***
    4.Nobody's Fool (1994) ***


    All his other films offer some form of interest for me, but aren't exactly priorities either[​IMG].

    Even if I'm not one to swoon over the greatness of APOCALYPSE NOW (1979) in any of its myriad editions, KRAMER VS. KRAMER is definitely another undeserving Oscar-winner: well-acted, sure, but also just plain icky. As for the rest for Benton's films, all I can say is that his greatest achievement for me remains that of co-writing one of the key films of the 1960s - Arthur Penn's BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967).
