This is a difficult one...
Being a giant fan of Fahey and Busey I found this impossible not to miss.
The film itself has many bad qualities. The sound is all over the place. The levels peak mid shot and the mics pick up annoying chunks so sound, like Fahey leather jacket making that leather-jacket-sort-of-noise. The amount of footaged re-used is amazing. I can think of a least 5 glaring examples.
However, then there is the cast and plot. Fahey (who supports the film perfectly) is great is a role that he can play in his sleep. Busey limited usage shows and his pyjamas are exceptional. Russo really only shines in the action sequences. Madsen give a good as he wants (which I don't believe is very much) as the charater has very little to do and didn't require someone like Madsen to play it.
If you can manage to endure the technical problems this turns out to be a fairly enjoyable waste of time.
