This is a wonderful movie about a unique time and place in the life of America, done with wonderful, almost creepy authenticity. It is smoggy LA with a beautiful score. Kris Kristofferson and Gene Hackman are just plain terrific, and so are Viva and Harry Dean Stanton. (And it's got a great cast of Hollywood character actors.) Along with The Player and Boogie Nights, it is one of the best movies ever made about L.A. Along with Nashville and This Is Spinal Tap, it's one of the best movies ever made about the American music scene. If you can find it, see it!
