Set in the late fifties, this is a tale of misguided youths, music, sex, crime, beer and police. There's a crafty script with modern dialogue and social statements. The beatniks make for a easy frame and alibi for a psychotic rapist hell bent on revenge to all women and square father-like men.
Behind the facade of crime there is a real police story and the inner-conflict between the cops, criminals, and victims are portrayed. Beautiful women both submissive and dominant mask the ugliness of both male characters cop and criminal. At the end we are not sure which side wins out. Beat Generation?
