DUDES (1987)
DUDES (1987)

Much loved, yet curiously unavailable for so long, Giallo Goblin is proud to offer a quality transfer of, Penelope Spheeris’s sublimely ludicrous cow punk road comedy ‘Dudes’. Jon Cryer, Daniel Robuck and Flea decide that the life of a big apple punker is a stone cold snooze, and in a moment of drunken inspiration they decide that a road trip to sunny California might improve their metropolitan ennui. A bummer for them, but fortunately for the viewer their ramshackle exodus is fraught with all manner of improbable calamity, not least of which is a violent encounter with some low down desert skeezoids, headed by the murderous redneck, Missoula; played with gleeful mania by ex-Fear vocalist, Lee ‘Black Moon Rising’ Ving. ‘Dudes’ is a genuine oddity that begs for rediscovery; due to endearing twin lead performances from Roebuck & Cryer, exhilarating RAWK soundtrack, and gleefully eccentric mise en scene by Penelope Spheeris;  but the real clincher for me is when the bickering punkers over-imbibe a bottle of lysergic snake juice, procured from amiable renaissance man, Daredelvis (Pete Wilcox) and suddenly Spheeris plunges us deep into Alex Cox territory where all manner of gonzoid western archetypes are purloined for her and our amusement. In many ways it’s the film's many flaws and incongruities that makes it such a lovable rogue.
