This Film was first brought to my attention when I heard my father one night yelling at the T.V. in disgust the next day I found out that he had sat through this movie. His reaction which I could hear several rooms away and through much padding sparked my interest in seeing this film.
Now having actually viewed this film I wish to first apologize to Stanley Kubrick for saying that 2001: A Space Odyssey was the most over rated, convoluted, pretentious and all around worst films I’d ever seen. This film surpassed it by leaps and bounds, where space odyssey at least had interesting visuals this films had the look of some odd process of tanning and over exposure which makes it hard to ever really tell what’s happening, on screen. The editing is so loose that the story loses all it’s energy early on and never regains it. Then it becomes hard to understand because most of the dialogue gets drowned out by either the over zealous music score (which I found to be annoying at best and terrible at worst) or the sound design which sinks any chance of understanding what is happening. The Harvard scenes early on seem unnecessary as does the whole rollerskate sequence and in all there is nothing in this film to take interest in. In the end this film could have used alot of work cause as is this film manages to be a failure in almost every way possible. Please world let us bury this film forever so that westerns might get the treatment they deserve.
