The American Way

[a.k.a. Riders of the Storm]
Dir: Maurice Phillips
Star: Dennis Hopper, Michael J. Pollard, Eugene Lipinski, James Aubrey

[3] Hopper and his group of weird Vietnam vets, who run a pirate TV station from an old bomber, do battle against an 'Iron Lady' presidential candidate in a media war. Black humour, reminiscent of Repo Man in parts, that superbly piss-takes TV evangelism, politics and life in general. Great characters, even if I did spot the twist in the tail very early - only other complaint is a badly mixed soundtrack which is sometimes hard to decipher.


Thumb's the word
