While there is a hearty amount of penetration here, involving cucumbers, butt plugs, blow-up dolls, and a gorilla, for starters, it is far beyond porn. Dominated by dialogue, absurd and hilarious, ever-accentuated by the lowest budget beautiful noiresque lighting, a score emphasizing the zingers, fluid bursts, and a phenomenal cast, this is a character study of a motley crew, unlike anything I've ever seen. WONDERFUL
"Thundercrack!" is an infamous circus of sexual uncertainty, the result of a collaboration between underground artist Curt McDowell and friend George Kuchar. "Sparkle's Tavern" had a sociopolitical sincerity that isn't present in this, despite similar themes and casting. What we witness instead with "Thunder" is absurd dialogue in dark places where senseless acts occur, and it's not as amusing as it thinks it is.
