UPDATE!: Freebie & The Bean has been made available via the Warner Archives!
In what may be a regular feature of this site, it pains me to say that Richard Rush's FREEBIE & THE BEAN is still absent from DVD in the United States (and, as far as I can tell, everywhere else in the world as well). Reviewed in Cashiers du Cinemart #15 by Mike Thompson, this ultimate un-PC buddy cop film is one of my favorite films of the '70s as well as tops on my list of Richard Rush films. Rush, for those of you who may not know, is a wonderfully quirky director who helmed THE STUNT MAN, COLOR OF NIGHT, GETTING STRAIGHT, and a bevy of exploitation films in the 1970s (A MAN CALLED DAGGER, HELLS ANGELS ON WHEELS, et cetera).
