A cynical look at the life of a not so nice country-western singer, played by Rip Torn in one of his most memorable performances. He ruthlessly manipulates everyone around him to suit his selfish needs, and even gets his limo driver to take the blame for the death of a fan which he stabbed.

WOW! A scathing portrait of humanity — Rip Torn really goes there. Men are filth and this is real.
Moves at a great clip, features a few terrific songs, a lot of discomfiting laughs, poking the raw nerve of masculinity.
I was blown away by the film.
