This is a story of three desperadoes and a girl who accidentally go to a small town after screwing up an assassination job and robbing a bank. The town is owned by the McMahon family (the Pogues with a few others thrown in) all of whom are addicted to coffee and enjoy killing and being all in all bastards. There's tension, characters clashing and sexual. The film didn't have a whole lot of a plot, but that doesn't really matter much because it seems to be more of a spoof on spaghetti westerns and even the actors and actresses themselves. It takes repeated viewing to really get down what is going on and how the parties are related to each other, but that doesn't seem to matter quite so much. All in all, I recommend this film to those of you who love weird movies and everyone who remembers the 80's punk scene.

A gang of bank robbers with a suitcase full of money go to the desert to hide out. After burying the loot, they find their way to a surreal town full of cowboys who drink an awful lot of coffee. The townspeople are hostile to the outsiders at first, but seem to accept them once they've killed a couple of people. After a while, a mysterious man named Dade arrives, who seems to have unpleasant business to settle with the robbers. A free-for-all shoot-em-up ensues.

What's wrong with the kid? Sexual Tension.Reviewed by[email protected]Vote: 7/10
This movie is so amazing, and I deeply envy any fan of Repo Man who has yet to unearth this incredible gem. But there is very little middle-ground in terms of this film's audience. Either you get it, or you don't. You fall over laughing or you yawn. Just read the other comments for this title and you'll see what I mean. Maybe you have to be a punk (or to HAVE BEEN a punk) for this flick to really work, because that sensibility, and the New Wave, this wonderful amalgam of anarchy and spaghetti-western suffuses the entire film. I see so many comments that say things like "Weird, but interesting", as though anything "weird" ought to be regarded with suspicion. Well, if that's your attitude, STAY AWAY from this movie. This is not about perfectly narrative storytelling. This is not about special effects. This is a gleeful celebration of cinematic language, angry music and cultural icons. Fox Harris and Jennifer Balgobin are in it, for the love of god, and so are the Pogues!
The price of man's obsessions are a trip Straight to Hell (in a rented red import no less). There is no nuance in this movie, just blood, money, coffee, guns and sexual tension. There is a pregnant demon named Velma and a Christ figure named Karl. All but two of the characters in the movie are hardly characters at all, just expressions of lust and obsession. Conveniently they are all played by non-actors (Musicians that couldn't get the backing to do a concert in Nicaragua in '87). Dennis Hopper plays what is essentially Mephistophilis calling all the players home to hell. Sy Richardson's Norwood is the only character who is not ruled by his obsessions. In this morality play that is what separates his fate from everyone else's. An important commentary on our modern world. Or maybe it was just all that mescaline.
Seriously folks cut Alex some slack. The picture is beautifully filmed. The people who can't act are given one dimensional roles which is highly preferable to giving someone that has no acting ability a role with weight and importance (Daryl Hannah in Wall Street, Keanu Reeves in Much Ado About Nothing). It's got a fantastic soundtrack and Karl doing the Weiner Dog Song is one of the funniest things ever. Really. Ever.
