Overview

A yuppie and a hippie are the offbeat pairing of this character comedy in the tradition of earlier mismatched buddy films such as Midnight Run 1988. Kiefer Sutherland is uptight, 26-year-old FBI agent John Buckner, who's been assigned to escort an aging counterculture radical named Huey Walker Dennis Hopper to Oregon for trial on a charge that's decades old. Buckner finds Huey's lifestyle and beliefs irresponsible. Once the two are bound for their Pacific Northwest destination, Huey begins to play psychological mind games with the straight-arrow Buckner, convincing him that he's tripping on hallucinogenic drugs, getting him drunk, and setting him up with a hooker named Sparkle Kathleen York. Huey trades places with his captor and soon a game of cat-and-mouse is afoot as the agent pursues the one-time radical, with surprising revelations abounding regarding Buckner's childhood and Huey's motivations for allowing himself to be captured. Flashback also stars Carol Kane, Cliff De Young, Richard Masur, Michael McKean, and Paul Dooley.

    Makes me long for the 60's (and Dennis Hopper)

    Okay, so you don't have to have come of age in the 60's, as I did, to really appreciate this great movie, but it helps! I've seen it several times over the years, but with the recent loss of Dennis Hopper, I am compelled to see it again, and share it with friends who never even heard of it! What a shame, that in all the lists of Dennis Hopper movies mentioned in the media shortly after his death, this movie was never mentioned. I think it was one of his best roles, playing an aging 60's radical pursued by a slick, stern, and quite young, 80's FBI agent (Kiefer Sutherland). What a ride they had together. And who could forget Hopper's final great line. I have it memorized, and like many who saw and appreciated the film, I am still analyzing it. You must see the movie to hear it!

    I loved the 80's

    As a Canadian who grew up in Toronto and tried to experience all the 'bad stuff' which we called 'good stuff' at the time, it amases me how much this film seems to reflect how we felt at that time and how we played together. The limits were blurry and experimentation was allowed and encouraged. This film showed me I was not crazy and alone in my madness.

    A Great Film From the Late, Great 1980s

    I was a movie usher in 1989 when this film was released, and if I had not been in that role at that time, I would have never been aware of this film. What a mistake that would have been! This is an awesome movie that is a delight to watch. It stars Dennis Hopper as the sixties radical who never let go of his past, and the great Keifer Sutherland as the uptight eighties yuppie who can't get started with his future. This film has a great plot, great acting, a great concept, and great music. The ending is absolutely great - whenever I watch it, it makes me feel good in terms of its overall message about life.

    Great Movie for Hippies

    A movie which can explain what the 60's really meant to those who lived it and those, like myself, who wished that they lived it. The 60's were about f---ing up the establishment, convincing the president that he is tripping on hallucinogenic drugs, and having a far-out time. And here we are, 20 years after the death of the flower generation, f---ing up the establishment again, and this movie couldn't have come at a better time either with the hippie revival of the late 80's. I believe that anyone who was born to a social minority should embrace their background, whether it be Irish, African, Asian, or even Hippie, every person is good if they choose to be. So headbands off to anybody around who would like to make the world a better place, or who likes wearing or making tie-dyes.
