This movie was heavily cut by the studio, resulting in two different versions, both of which have been effectively disowned by director William Richert. The non-US print resembles his original vision most clearly, with an Elmer Bernstein score and five extra songs on the soundtrack. Richert has recently revealed that he has recently acquired four and a half minutes of extra footage which makes the lead character deeper and easier to sympathise with. He is planning to release a new cut of the film under its source material's original title: 'Aren't You Even Going To Kiss Me Goodbye?'. See more »
Sad that most people doesn't understand most of it...
I miss movies like these. strong and poetic writing with intense narration by Phoenix. the story is at the same time simple but influent and memorable to our common lives of all days.
the scene when Phoenix rides the car through the alleys and talking about cigars is hardly forgotten.
we all, not even for once, have lived like this, we all have been a teen like this, we all have had our small and big frustrations like these, and we all have had surprises... ...and there's always a new day to come.
