Deadly Drifter, is a fantastic movie. I find
a Gnostic Christian theme, running entirely
through it, from beginning, to end. The script
is fabulous, and symbolic, in my opinion, and
is an early version of The Matrix. Again, as
in the movie "Small Time", we have an Indian
man, very knowledgeable, and somewhat magical,
who shares his views about life, with Peter
Coyote's character. Tommy the tourist,
obviously a dark force, is eliminated, due to
his evil inclinations. I believe he represents
an Archon of the Demiurge, of Gnostic texts.
The Old Man, is the Demiurge. The commissioner
I believe, represents the True God, who none
of the characters ever meet, due to their
hylic, and psychic states. The characters meet
their demise, and are eventually reincarnated.
They come together on the beach, where they
have a barbecue, and talk about old times.
Peter Coyote's character, (now in the Pneumatic
Condition)- finds the way out..The Way Out Of
The Material Illusion.
This movie is filled with symbolism, and is
well worth watching many times.

Pointless movie

"I want to thank reviewer Jeffrey Leach for helping me gain a tiny insight into this film. Without his informing me that this was a satire of American radicalism, I would have guessed it was somebody's high school film project - that got an F. I'd give it a zero, but this system won't go that low.

The question the movie leaves me and the friends who sat through this is why would Danny Glover or Peter Coyote agree to this project?"
