As a datahound, I have had fairly good luck over the years sniffing out and hunting down alot of the bits of media I have sought after, but, as I am sure many collectors can relate to, there are always those few pieces of the puzzle that remain elusive.
Currently, I am trying in vain to search for a film that I know exists, but the main problem is that I have no idea what it's title is. It was something I saw on HBO in the late 80's, back when they would show all kinds of weird stuff between 12-5 AM. That was when they would show all the experimental, foreign, or otherwise low-budget stuff that they had license to show, but would not put on during the day.
Since it was also customary for HBO to show the same pieces nearly every night for months at a time, I managed to see this particular film probably more than 20 times over the course of a summer's worth of sleepless nights.
Suffice it to say, without knowing the title, it is proving hard for me to locate. All I have to go on are the vague memories of the film, which I posted on a film-related message board:
Two guys are involved in some type of action-packed adventure in a vast underground sewer system. I cannot recall the nature of their mission, only that it involves continual face-offs with a gang of 80s-futuristic subterrainian badasses.
Also, this sub-surface world is populated by various types of interesting freaky people, most notably a closed circuit radio DJ who broadcasts seemingly 24/7 from a centralized sewer location. In my mind, I always equated him with the Hollywood character from the film Mannequin.
One of the few other impressions I have left of this film involves the final scene: After the heroes have saved the day somehow and stand once again on the surface world, one says to the the other something about how they can finally resume their normal lives. The other, in response, looks back in the direction of the hole he just emerged from, where we see a group of underworld dwellers that had aided them in their quest. Among them stands a large, extremely muscle-bound beefcake of a woman, who winks and smiles at our second hero.
This main character, of which it was established quite early in the film is a horndog attracted to anything even remotely classified as female, turns back to his friend and indicates that he has found something better in the underground world.
I know it's a long shot that anybody out there may recognize the obscure movie I am looking for, based soley on my scattered description, but it doesn't hurt my cause to throw out the net!
If anyone has any guess as to what the name of this film was, I would love to hear it.
