Oh my god, I had believed that this film was simply a bad hallucination
30 April 2000 | by (Storrs, CT) – See all my reviews

Well, I guess that this was actually a real film, and I really saw it, and I must say that this is one of the biggest disappointments of my day. This film was really, really, really terrible. Dennis Hopper was coked up to the gills and acting 1000 miles/minute. His charge in the film was simply a bad actor and on top of all of this, they lifted the crowd footage for the concert scenes from the TSOL concert that happens during the film Suburbia (the good punk film, not that lame thing that Eric Bogosian did a few years ago, I love Bogosian, but this film was an mistake), right down to using the fight scene with the main characters from the other film.

This movie was below low budget and I doubt that even the most hardcore Dennis Hopper fans will be able to sit through this 90 minutes of pointless nonsense. To be honest, I am still not really sure what this movie was about, a concert promoter and some Yanni-esque keyboardist. Some riots and random footage from other films, I dunno.
