Limonádový Joe aneb Konská opera

Oldřich Lipský Czechoslovakia, 1964

Th MZA's rating of the film Lemonade Joe

It plays like a student film that went on too long with no eye as to what might be too boring or not funny enough -- with energy to burn, but wasted on a tired and toothless critique of the excesses of capitalist advertising. A jump-cut gun battle and a fast-motion fistfight involving a dummy are mildly diverting, but overall I'd rather watch a mediocre, earnest western or a Super Bowl commercial.
