Relatively obscure 1-name acotr "Flea" doesn't have many roles to his credit. It's sort of unfortunate, I'm not sure why. Here in Dudes he displays admirable acting prowess. Were the studios to pick up on him more, perhaps he could have had a career. Now 30 years in the rear view it is probably too late for him unless he wants to work on movies about old folks' homes like Gideon or Bubba Ho-Tep. Anyway, Dudes is probable Penelope Spheeris's best-known picture. The music is extra-good and the portrayal of the Southwest USA is very realistic. This is guns and gods country and if you come there from New York you are likely to get shot, frankly. Gutsily in spite of the hard R Penelope opts not to show us any nudity, not even a bare male bottom. Because that's not what this movie is about.
