| Thoughtful yet disturbing TV-movie
Martin Balsam is excellent as the troubled writer whose teleplay inspires a boy to start a fire. The dilemma of how far moral responsibility should extend is examined thoughtfully raising more questions than the movie can answer. The supporting cast does a marvelous job. Even for a TV-movie however, this film disappoints somewhat in being visually uninteresting to the extreme. Still worth watching and discussing.
