Then they all leave Greenwich Village to head out on various missions that will take them to the West Coast.
Jeffrey Leach
The story itself had potential (conceptually if not in how it was realized), and could perhaps be great if done completely differently (and I mean completely!).

I am willing to guess however you will most likely be just as befuddled and confused by it as the rest of us.

I heartily agree with what every other reviewer says about Eli Hollander's "Deadly Drifter." What a horribly confusing, absurdist film! Then I noticed the picture also goes by the title "Out," and that someone named Ronald Sukenick wrote the screenplay based on a novel by, not surprisingly, Ronald Sukenick. Hmmm. Well, the obtuseness of the film inspired me to launch an Internet excursion in the hope that I would discover the idea behind this bizarre motion picture. I first searched for everything I could find on the film itself, under "Deadly Drifter" and then "Out." All I found were several angry movie reviews blasting Hollander's effort. Then I stumbled over a throwaway line somewhere that said "Deadly Drifter" is a satire of American radicalism. Aha! Unless you've seen the film, you can't imagine how much that one line helps to clear up a few of the mysteries surrounding this odd little movie. When I did a search for Ronald Sukenick, I understood even more. He's an avant-garde fiction writer, which means he writes nonsense and passes it off as serious literature. Whatever. If you think "Deadly Drifter" the film is weird, you haven't seen anything until you read the first few pages of "Out."

"Deadly Drifter" stars Peter Coyote as Rex, a man caught up in a giant conspiracy. When we first meet up with Rex, he's toting dynamite and climbing around on a rooftop with fellow revolutionary Nixie (O-Lan Shepard). The two speak through thoughts, imploring each other not to fall and other nonsense as they look through a window just in time to see a woman with a knife cutting out a man's tongue. Confused yet? Don't worry; you will be within seconds. The movie then switches focus to a meeting of Rex's and Nixie's revolutionary cell.

Deadly Drifter, is a fantastic movie. I find

a Gnostic Christian theme, running entirely

through it, from beginning, to end. The script

is fabulous, and symbolic, in my opinion, and

is an early version of The Matrix. Again, as

in the movie "Small Time", we have an Indian

man, very knowledgeable, and somewhat magical,

who shares his views about life, with Peter

Coyote's character. Tommy the tourist,

obviously a dark force, is eliminated, due to

his evil inclinations. I believe he represents

an Archon of the Demiurge, of Gnostic texts.

The Old Man, is the Demiurge. The commissioner

I believe, represents the True God, who none

of the characters ever meet, due to their

hylic, and psychic states. The characters meet

their demise, and are eventually reincarnated.

They come together on the beach, where they

have a barbecue, and talk about old times.

Peter Coyote's character, (now in the Pneumatic

Condition)- finds the way out..The Way Out Of

The Material Illusion.

This movie is filled with symbolism, and is

well worth watching many times.

...it's obvious why. This has got to be the worst movie I've ever sat through, but it has some surprisingly redemptive qualities. The most obvious is getting to enjoy all these reviews afterwards - the best laugh I've had in a while. The story itself had potential (conceptually if not in how it was realized), and could perhaps be great if done completely differently (and I mean completely!). As it is, it comes across like a high school film project (conceived in committee from a mishmash of immature friend's psychedelic experiences) with adult actors somehow hoodwinked into donating their time....(oh, those oblivious parents).

But amid the disjointed Dadaist surrealism there is something remarkable and worth seeing here, and that is the Humpback Whale mother and child footage. These are some of the best close up whale images I have ever seen - seriously. While the rest of the movie is ponderously satiric and inessential these whales are the real deal. Like the sweet and perfect lotus arising from a sewer filled swamp they are sublime and unlikely - amazing in themselves, and perhaps even in what they are used to signify here, whatever that is....

Please know right off the bat that my rating of one star for this movie is totally unfair and not right. "Deadly Drifter" is nowhere near worthy of one star. But since Amazon requires at least one star for a rating when you write a review I have no choice then to be so generious with this rating. This is a totally bizarre, weird, confusing, obtuse and most of all unentertaining movie! Still if that is how you love your movies then this is the flick for you. In all fairness I probably shouldn't review this sorry excuse of a movie considering it was so bad I gave up trying to watch and understand the movie or what the plot was about, assuming there is a plot to it, about halfway through. There is no rhyme or reason to the story and I figured if halfway through this mess there was still no hint of a plot or any logic the best thing to do was give up wasting precious time out of my life watching such garbage. If you have an open mind and want to take a shot at watching this film then go for it. If you do watch it and can understand what the HELL is going on in the film then please please please write a review in Amazon on it and explain to the rest of us who don't get it what "Deadly Drifter" is suppose to be about. I am willing to guess however you will most likely be just as befuddled and confused by it as the rest of us. Just remember you have been warned!
