Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Get Back is a "loser" film: not a film that is itself a loser, but one about losers. Michael Parks and Chuck Shantana play a couple of over-aged surfers who sit around wondering why life has passed them by. With nothing else to occupy their time, the duo stages a holdup. The two have a falling out over leading lady Bonnie Bedelia, who is frankly too good for either of them. Though the protagonists seem doomed from the start, they still manage to evoke audience empathy. Filmed in Canada, Get Back's U.S. distribution was limited to festival showings and TV exposure.
