One of my ten all-time favorite films, primarily for the superb musical scenes, including the opening 'Brazil' and the closing 'Polka-Dot Polka' but the 'Lady in the Tutti-Frutti Hat' is just fantastic! The plot is simple, just enough to string together the musical scenes, a few laughs and some unintended poignancy. Of those young soldiers and sailors who gathered to listen to Benny and Carmen sing, which of these bright young lives were cast into the dustbin of war? For anyone who enjoys musicals, for anyone who appreciates psychedelia this film is the ne plus ultra.
