it loses its way a couple of times (although not completely messy) but holds some really beautiful shots (some that in the house are reminiscent of lynch) & captures a mood & aesthetic that is unusually rare. 3.5 stars.
Doing something bizarre is easy to think at if you train it or if you feel like it, but doing something absolutely bizarre and not miss a single shot is a real aim. This film is so true to itself, so creative, so well executed you cant' understand how it has been possible for such a little budget. Amazing.
s'a big batch of 3's i#m wading through right now......so, to justify, intriguing, a fascinating eye on some of the more out there aspects of the 70's, but not as engaging as I hoped. signs of the Tobe Hooper to come, though...
Perhaps not "psychedelic comedy" - it resists any categorisation, except perhaps "film art" which captures both its strengths (ribald unconcern with traditional sense) and weaknesses (an experiment without a result).
