(Ivan Passer, 1981). Post hippie despair melds with neo-noir paranoia in this moody, sensationally acted character study by Czech director Ivan Passer—a tale of decadence and cover-up in Santa Barbara. John Heard gives a career performance as a manic, mutilated Vietvet amputee, with Lisa Eichhorn as his long-suffering wife and Jeff Bridges in a superb turn as a beach-boy gone rancid in the California sun.
