A bizarre series of murders begins in Los Angeles, where people start going bald and then become homicidal maniacs. But could the blame rest on a particularly dangerous form of LSD called Blue Sunshine the murderers took ten years before?
Whenever I watch this film, I think about how much Liston's life parallels Mike Tyson's life. Sonny Liston was probably the most intimidating fighter in the history of boxing. This film definitely shows how Liston, who started out as an illiterate thug for the mob, rose to become world champion. It also shows how he was constantly harassed by the police and how the mob had him under their control. And another aspect of the film was how it showed that Liston had very few friends, just hangers on who never really cared for his best interests, much like the people around Mike Tyson. Sonny Liston should have dominated the fight game for many years. Too bad his demons got the better of him leading to his tragic death eight years after he defeated Floyd Patterson for the heavyweight title and this film really drives that point home.
