The pacing is almost perfect. The whole thing is only two days, but the flow is so carefully modulated that interest never flags. Very brightly colored photography. Torn's character is carefully constructed: a self-centered artist focused on money, indifferent to morality, indifferent to self-preservation, a guy who sells out his friend without a pang, but a guy who finds meaning in music. Ahna Capri is jaw-dropping as the innocent groupie, putty for the men but a real hard case for female competitors.
I was transfixed by this movie, and couldn't get it out of my head for many hours.
