I bought the movie for a dollar in the Mission area of San Francisco without knowing what it was about except it was a biker movie. I picked up half a dozen 1960s biker movies, since the DVDs were just a buck, and watched this after Angels: Hard as They Come.
Jim Jarmusch looked really familiar. Is that Nick Cave? When was this made? It wasn't until after I watched it that I looked it up on IMDb and found out it wasn't made in the 1960s.
This is a crazy weird movie with no background sound at all. I love Davie Allen and the Arrows, but watching a movie where bands "play" but there's no sound is very interesting. By no background sound, I mean nothing. Not the sound of motorcycles or anything. Just dialogue, then it's like the mic is cut off. It was very neat when some rockers (riding a cafe Norton, a Hinckley Triumph and something else) put a song on the jukebox to look tough before wailing the tar out of the main guy, but no music comes out.
Very surreal. I thought about trying to hunt down the European version to see it in full sound and to figure out what languages they speak, but I'll stick with the surreal.
