Viet-Nam! Yep, this is one weird, strange, bizarre, and haunting train ride. A train ride back from Nam......A train ride back home.....a train ride to doom! An outstanding performance by Dennis Hopper; his best. Playing a U.S. Army Sargent escorting a dead friend's coffin back home for burial, Hopper goes through a journey of self-reflection. With a haunting sound-track of popular World War II songs as a backdrop, it's a train ride to doom. It's a symbolic ride of happiness, humor, friendship, lust, love, hate, despair, guilt, betrayal, and death; America's journey through the Viet-Nam War years. It's not an easy movie to watch and to younger viewers it most likely will make little or no sense, but it's a truly outstanding motion picture. The ending is one of the most shocking and surprising in film history. Tracks is fantastic.
