This wonderfully weird, deadpan portrait of outsiders and oddballs living in Key West, Florida, stars Peter Fonda as a wannabe fishing guide who finds himself drawn into a dangerous rivalry with Oates’s crusty, irascible backwaters boatman. The combination of the offbeat cast—also including Harry Dean Stanton, Burgess Meredith, a pre–Lois Lane Margot Kidder, and cult actress Sylvia Miles—delivering deliciously florid dialogue in the sun-blasted setting makes for a one-of-a-kind, surreally entertaining seriocomedy that eschews any discernible narrative structure in favor of a loose-limbed, lo-fi quirkiness.
