Odd satire of 1960s biker flicks was produced by Aki Kaurismäki, so not too surprisingly it features an appearance by Jim Jarmusch (as a semimythical biker) and Kaurismäki himself (as a guy in a Cadillac looking for Reno). Gould plays a hapless dropout who runs afoul of a cannibalistic biker gang before throwing in his lot with a gorgeous bank-robbing Castroite. In between, much hilarity and mayhem ensues. Not otherwise distinguished but does a pretty good job evoking the films of the era, buoyed by a soundtrack featuring the likes of Davie Allan and the Arrows.
