'Some day I'd like to see some of this country we're travelling through' says one of the fugitive couple in They Live By Night. Two decades later, their spiritual children had gone 'underground', discovered dope, rock and road... and a preference for male friendships. In this simplistic amalgam of travelogue and the zoom lens, a beatific Fonda and his mumbling St John go looking for America, financed courtesy of a coke deal with Phil Spector. The film was right about one thing at least: the advent of cocaine as the drug.
