If you have the patience for 1970s' clunky experimentation, there's a lot of fun and charm here. While the constant meandering keeps this from being a lost classic, the characters are winning as all the actors are 100% buying into the "electric Western" premise (Elvin Jones is just incredible), the sets and desert locations are great, and chunks of the score are pure gold. Extra points to a gang being called "The Crackers" and Don Johnson being the most beautiful person to ever live.

I kind of want to double feature this with MYRA BRECKINRIDGE, but that might be some latent sadistic tendencies on my part.
