However, these are not visible in the shot looking from behind Bob. They are again visible in the following shot from behind Dianne. See more »

Alternating between amusing and distressing, this film is one of the best of the drug culture genre. I like it's simplicity and its West Coast-ishness. Matt Dillon is amazing. The script is great - Dillon has tons of great lines. Good performances all around actually. Well worth seeing.
