Some movies aspire to strangeness. Other movies have strangeness thrust upon them.
Saturn 3, released in 1980, was an intensely strange film. But unlike, say, Altered States (also released in 1980) it wasn’t made by a filmmaker with a taste for the oblique or the outre.

Two For The Road screens at 10:30am Saturday morning, January 30th at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117). Admission is $10 and this is a fundraiser sponsored by the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society Alliance.

And the movie, released in 1967, captures the mood of the 60s before Nam, the Counterculture, and radical politics so altered the landscape. »
