Quotes

Male Hustler: That's just, you know, the country's twisted, man. And unless, unless, uh, something happens, unless we tear it all down and start all over again from the beginning, it's not gonna work. It's gonna burn out, we're gonna go right into the ocean, and that's gonna be the end of it. And that's too bad, because we had a good chance.

I think it was William Burroughs who said in a Paris Review interview that the reason he stopped being a junkie was that he was sitting around one day and suddenly realized that he wasn't doing anything. As in "bored to tears". Certainly that attitude is well conveyed in this film.
