Nice review, Daniel. I too really enjoyed this film. Crispin Glover was awesome in this; He really stood out. Disappointing to hear about the video quality. I just watched the DVD not too long ago and thought that it actually looked pretty good. When I can find this blu-ray release for $10 or less I'll definitely get it because that commentary sounds like a good listen.

Thanks for the kind words.

While the video quality is disappointing, the content outweighs the packaging. Yes, Crispin Glover is highly memorable in this movie, and he even out-weirded Dennis Hopper. Since a lot of this movie was shot in Sacramento, where I live, it was fascinating to watch this film again. And I forgot how alluring Ione Skye looks in it (despite her being 15 at the time it was filmed...)

I just rewatched this last month and it still is incredible. It holds up very, very well and holy shit does Glover act his ass off. Seem's like Hunter just gave him free reign to create this crazy charecter. It's also a great screenplay. Having Hopper love a blow up doll is brillaint and kinda touching at the end.
