The plot alone is worth watching the movie! A former child-hippie turned FBI agent is forced to look at his past when he is put in charge of escorting a 60's counterculture icon across state lines to authorities in Washington.
Great movie, great acting! Also look for Richard Masur and Michael McKean who steal a bit of the spotlight from the the two leads, they are hilarious.
Flashback showcases Dennis Hopper's talent very nicely and the film makes me miss him that much more. See this movie, now!
