When Sam is picked up from the building, with a rope ladder hanging
from the belly of the the B-29, for a brief moment the landing skids
of a helicopter are visible.
However, as the Aspect ratio listed for the film is 1.33 : 1 (negative
ratio) 1.85 : 1 (intended ratio), it leads me to believe we're seeing
things that were meant to be "matted" out at the top and bottom to
make the aspect ratio 1.85 : 1. There is also a scene where the
religious group is shooting or doing a commercial and we see a boom
microphone at the bottom of the screen. This also would have been
"matted" out at 1.85 : 1. See more »
The closing credits of the film include a video screen showing the film itself being played backwards at high speed. See more »
Dennis Hopper and Michael J. Pollard (Doc Tesla) lead a crew of misfit Vietnam veterans highly trained in psychological warfare and armed with a B29 equipped as a flying pirate TV station creating havoc for the broadcast networks and authorities as they fly the country on a crusade to bring radical philosophies and classic audiovisuals to a conservative and media brainwashed viewing public.
On the verge of retirement they are compelled to mount one last campaign to destroy a demographically engineered presidential candidate who would see the country brought to war again.
Extensive explorations into concepts of non-violent defiance of authority and pursuit of justice, questioning conventional morality, exposition of criminal activities in the guise of righteousness by righteous people being classed as criminals by a corrupt establishment, existentialist themes, technology and rock music versus violence and force, nature of religious beliefs, political corruption and post Vietnam issues.
Some excellent 60's and 70's music in the soundtrack. Not to be missed.
