The theatrical release of this film is 98 minutes long. It was disowned by director Dennis Hopper and is credited to 'Alan Smithee'. The 116 minutes long director's cut was released on cable television in the USA under the title 'Backtrack'. There also exists a 180 minutes long original cut which remains unreleased. See more »
If that's what you want, you want this movie-- she bares it not once but twice. Or if Bob Dylan wielding a chainsaw is your bag... The script is clichéd and inept, the directing choppy, the excellent cast largely wasted. At least they look like they had fun making it. If it was better written/directed, the basic premise of the abductee falling for the abductor might be more believable. Jodie spends most of her time looking worried, until she suddenly mutates into passionate lover/co-conspirator. Joe Pesci managed to have his name completely scrubbed from the film and the packaging, although his part is not minor. Blink and you'll miss Catherine Keener, apparently in her first credited role. Somebody should put the soundtrack's sax player out of our misery.
