Old, old post--but I saw this only this morning, and had to comment. True the police were close on Remick's admirable tail for most of the film--but they would naturally do that, I think; think Kurosawa's High and Low, and how many cops worked on the case of Mifune's driver's son's kidnapping. There as here it's the style that counts, and the only suspsense if or when the kidnapper is caught.

Besides Lynch's film, I think there are strong similarities with Dirty Harry--a girl is kidnapped, confined in a small space, the perpetrator hides in a sports arena, and we even have Seigel's camera backing away from the arena in a spectacular helicopter shot.
