Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary points out immediately in his review, this dated film is “bad and self-indulgent”, but nonetheless has some redeeming qualities — namely its ability to capture the zaniness and existential yearnings of the 1960s, as well as addressing interracial romance and showing confident, successful Blacks at a time when this was still considered taboo by many.
Unfortunately, Waite’s grating baby-voice got on my nerves immediately, and her wiggish hair makes her look like Phyllis Diller; I’m not surprised she only made two more films after this.
- Donald Sutherland as the dying, kind-hearted aristocrat Joanna befriends
- An eclectic mixture of surrealistic filming techniques
No, but film fanatics will likely be curious to check it out.
