    I couldn’t agree more, I found this movie compelling but in that “my god Dennis I feel embarrassed for you” kind of way. His non stop self aggrandizing hippy philosophizing was annoying, and his view of women just lecherous and callow. One redeeming thing about this film (and this might sound mean) but he really thought he was reinventing the wheel with The Last Movie, I mean he really believed that he could walk on water, and that this movie would be the next great thing and it nearly ruined Hopper’s career as a director. The best acting jobs he got were out of the country in films like Mad Dog Morgan, and The American Friend which are both amazing if you haven’t seen. It wasn’t until Colors in 1988 that he would gain the trust of a major studio.
