"Sociopathic angst" is a good description, Kim. I've seen this a few times on cable. It's one of those movies that I can't really describe, nor can I forget it. Every time I thought I had a handle on what it was, it would do something different. Patrick Warburton is a god.

Wow! Thanks for letting me know about this. I had no idea anyone made a film of this great book. Any idea where I can find it??? A quick search has so far yielded few results.

I have been curious about this movie ever since I read about it back in 1999. I had read and loved Charles Willeford's great novel, and thought that Patrick Warburton was an inspired choice for the lead. But actually tracking down a copy of the film was impossible--it really did seem as though this movie had vanished from the face of the planet, and I began to wonder if the film actually existed, if it had been destroyed somehow, much like the film Willeford's hero creates over the course of the novel.

Thanks, Kim, for confirming that this film actually exists... and curse you as well for renewing my desire to see it!


I just got a copy of this on ebay for $5. Thanks for alerting me to this. I can't wait to see it.


I love this film. I saw it the night it opened in LA and got to talk to Robinson Devor. In 100 years, the film'll be considered a classic.
