The new owner of a roadside diner stuck in a town built around an always leaking nuclear power plant plans to torch the place to collect insurance. However, an assortment of bizarre characters and weird events (such as spaceships flying around) gets in his way.

★★★½ review by Parker on Letterboxd
Rather than being shot on film, this movie used a technique where it was shot straight onto LSD and cocaine.
★★★½ review by ChristopherDay on Letterboxd
Somehow watching Dennis Hopper feed eggs to a raccoon is the least strange thing going on in this film.
★★★½ review by Madeleine on Letterboxd
Somewhere between The Apple and The Dark Backward made by minds who don't have a plan for coherently entertaining you so much but care deeply about making this thing they want to make. Those minds being Neil Young and pals.
The weird DEVO / Neil Young, lead by Booji Boy in a crib, jam session is the best part of this movie and I feel cheated it wasn't a lot longer. It could have been half the movie and I would have walked out of that theater shouting 5 stars.

★★★★ review by Ben Armington on Letterboxd
Broad comedy aiming to be an irreverent satire about podunk americana in the sickly glow of the nuclear age that looks like it was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch. Features incredible footage of Devo and Neil Young ripping through a deliriously unhinged version of 'Hey Hey My My' that is worth the price of admission alone. Dennis Hopper seems to be having a great time playing two roles and has a memorable scene with a racoon.
