If Easy Rider is Hopper's "lost generation" moment, Catchfire (aka Backtrack?) is his midlife crisis.
He really went ahead and made himself a relentless mob hitman who spends time with a repeatedly naked (and scorching hot) half-his-age Jodie Foster. He is then an action star for the finale.
This movie is so weird. Joe Pesci plays an impression of his iconic Scorsese roles--with several fellow alumni thrown in--and you get your hopes up. "90s crime thriller, here we go!"
