A film shoot in Peru goes badly wrong when an actor is killed in a stunt, and the unit wrangler, Kansas, decides to give up film-making and stay on in the village, shacking up with local prostitute Maria. But his dreams of an unspoiled existence are interrupted when the local priest asks him to help stop the villagers killing each other by re-enacting scenes from the film for real because they don't understand movie fakery...

post acid Hollywood meets European avant garde
7 June 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The year is 1972. Hopper the over-achiever, has been given a loose rein and cowboy saddle to make his follow up to Easy Rider. The drug culture of the time has reached saturation point. The hallucinations have become serious. "We don't do that in the movies, we fake everything. I don't really hit the man!" Hopper as Kansas, the movie hired hand, tries to teach a Peruvian local how to punch on film. The game of movie production has gone too far. The locals use wicker-work movie equipment to simulate the film set, but what is 4 real is what is going on in front of the camera. ritual sex and murder. like Hollywood Babylon infront of the camera.

The years of editing with near-death experiences family break-ups and financial insanity, produces the most raw, hilarious, beta wave brain rush available on celluloid.

A few years earlier in Europe, Fellini made Nights of Cabiria, a film about a prostitute who 'lives the life' gets involved in feverish ceremonies and ends up living in a primative hole in the ground well beyond Rome's slums. Well this film and Hopper's have a lot in common.

The use of music in this film is incredible, Kris Kristofferson's Me and Bobby McGee(a trucking freedom song) is transposed onto a scene of Kansas trecking on his horse triumphantly to lines like "good for nuthin's good enough fo' me"
