A debauched Hollywood movie actor tries to piece together one wild night in Miami years earlier which remains a drug-induced blur, and soon finds out that some questions about his past are best left unanswered.
One last job separates the leader of the Ravens gang from an early retirement. When he finds his girlfriend beaten to death by members of a rival gang, he seeks revenge, knowing that he may be dead by dawn. Will more blood bring her back?
Bought the LP soundtrack 30 years ago & recently bought the DVD to see where the music fit - some tracks are missing on the video. Dennis' ego trip(s) are normal for the 1970s. We all had a bit of telling the government what we were not going to do. Like the late-1960s, the early 1970s fostered the remnants of the 60's revolution into the 1970s "ME" generation. Someone like Hopper could affect so many, as did Tom Laughlin, in the "Billy Jack" series. Hopper was a man of his time & you either liked what he had to say or not. I chose middle ground, thus not getting into the decadence of the message, but not being complacent with what was going on during that period. "The American Dreamer" was one man's version of what he wanted to do with his life at that time. He (& I) have grown up.
