Hopper is the best thing here ........
5 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Dennis Hopper is on screen as an abusive drunk, this movie maintains interest. There is also a very strong opening, however once Hopper disappears, it is a steady slide downhill. Believability towards the end concerning a certain brother's delayed demise, borders on ridiculous. The film is talky, has no nudity, and since everything takes place at one seedy desert motel, there is little to maintain interest. Eventually with the overlong ending, the wheels come off completely. For Dennis Hopper fans this might be worthy of one viewing, even though you have seen him play the same boorish drunk many times before. Others could skip this one for sure. - MERK
