Will schizo Johnny pull himself together or crash and burn?
31 January 2007 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

Low-budget exploitation flick about "alienated youth" has an almost documentary presentation. The main focus seems to be the question of whether schizo Johnny, a James Dean-like overnight success, will pull himself together or crash and burn as he seems bent on doing with his unhealthy death wish. Johnny (Ken Clayton) alternates between violence and gentleness, sometimes sweet-natured and sometimes downright creepy. He all but kidnaps a young girl against her will, and winds up charming both her and her ailing father. Through it all, he seems curiously down to earth. A truly baffling character, unlike his compatriots who seem to have little talent and nothing but unrealistic dreams and little drive or ambition. It's not clear exactly by what means Johnny resolves his issues...but I suspect he expatriates to Italy, changes his name to Giorgio Ardisson, and has a flourishing career!
