Roger Corman United States, 1959

Daniel S.'s rating of the film A Bucket of Blood

***1/2. Fascinating study, for a 2010 audience at least, of the beatnik movement in the U.S., a little bit caricatural of course but oh so true if one thinks of the pseudo cultural movements that appeared since like the Hippies, the New Age or the Ecolo-Terrorists. Julian Burton's performance as the beatnik poet Maxwell H. Brock deserves to stay in the annals of Movie History. Highly recommended.
