The American Way is a fight to the finish TV debate
between two brilliant media strategists. The politician
as ultimate actress vs. the sociopathic rock ’n’ roll
guerrilla who smells more that a rat in her perfectly
groomed performance. The story concerns the efforts
of the long suffering S&M crew to strip the would-be
empress of her new cloths before it is too late.
The American way is not another Vietnam movie, but
uses the psychic scar tissue of that war to flush out
other contemporary issues. It holds these hostages
with irreverent humour, and only releases them after an
original and satisfying capitulation.
Cast: Dennis Hopper, Michael J.Pollard
