Yes *this* level of stimulation! Hard Days Night clowning; Rivette-like romps; Pre-Borowsczyk animated kink; whimsy & pranks to rival Daisies; puns/charm/slapstick pop irreverence (etc!) with the editing + sound forming the consistency that runs through the chaos, the rhythm to which the film adheres/unfolds. Which is whatever the rhythm of pure play is, basically. Would've been so much fun to work on/be around. 3.5
A compilation of the iconoclastic 60s formal tricks, ranging from Lester's Pop Art films with the Beatles to the avant-garde of several Nouvelle Vagues, passing by the stop-motion technique, more typical of some US experimentalism. The film is dedicated to Roger Vadim but what stands out the most is its familiarity with movies less encoded by an alleged libertine speculation and more free-form in its formulation.
