The Marines have landed! Cpl. Eddie Birdlace and three buddies are on the loose among San Francisco's bars, tattoo parlours and blue-movie houses. They've also organised a "dogfight", a wager with simple rules. Each guy puts in $50. And the one who finds the most unattractive date wins. Birdlace finds a Rose.
River Phoenix gave one of his most endearing performances as Eddie in Dogfight, a terrific and touching Vietnam-Era saga set to a memory-evoking '60s-tunes soundtrack and directed by Nancy Savoca (True Love, Household Saints). Lili Taylor is equally indelible as "ugly duckling" Rose, who joins Eddie in a night of life-transforming impact. In a time to be marked by huge changes, they share the most dynamic change of all: love.
