Roland Klick West Germany, 1966

Loz Loory's rating of the film Jimmy Orpheus

As a short, it should have been much shorter. The only way I could tolerate this was by imagining Marlon Brando playing the lead, straight from his role in "On the Waterfront." Even so, I fell asleep during two viewing attempts. Far too long and repetitive. The jump cuts seem more like cover for poor coverage than a purposeful stylistic device. Wished he would lie down on the street and sleep.
