Henry Jaglom abandons the poseur excesses that marred his first film, A Safe Place. This time it’s an incisive, revelatory film about a returning war veteran from Vietnam transporting the body of a friend across the US for burial.

Dennis Hopper gives an excellent rendering of this pro-soldier probably needing tenderness but hiding it until he finds it with a headstrong but knowing girl, played with authority by Tyrone Power’s daughter, Taryn, who shows an offbeat beauty and presence.

Sometimes uneasy on its rails, film has perceptive personages and works on the level of reality and hallucination as they interact to give a feel of the US. Film takes place mostly on the train.
