Although the UK cinema version was uncut, the 1986 video release suffered 24 seconds of detailed edits to the scenes where breaks into and hot-wires a car, plus his breaking into 'Valerie Kaprisky''s flat using the lock pick. The cuts were fully restored in 2001 and the certificate downgraded to a "15". See more »
an underrated film; Kapriskie and Grere are excellent
This is a good film which has been unfairly panned. The direction is excellent. Valerie Kapriskie does very well as Grere's love interest, and Grere himself, always willing to take an artistic risk, is superbly offbeat. The music is compelling and is used with genius, particulalry in the Santa Ana winds heat scene, where Kapriskie burns up the screen by simply slipping into a shoe. The chemistry between Kapriskie and Grere works. This should be a cult film.
