OMG! Worst Movie Ever "Made!", 18 November 2013
Author: artpf from United States

Long considered a cult classic, "Mondo Hollywood" captures the underside of Hollywood by documenting a moment in time (1965-67), when an inquisitive trust in the unknown was paramount, hope for the future was tangible and life was worth living on the fringe.

An interior monologue narrative approach is used throughout the film, where each principal person shown not only decided on what they wanted to be filmed doing, but also narrated their own scenes.

The film opens with Gypsy Boots (the original hippie vegan - desert hopping blender salesman), and stripper Jennie Lee, working out 'Watusi- style' beneath the 'Hollywood' sign -- leading into the 'sustainable community' insight of Lewis Beach Marvin III, the S&H Green Stamp heir, who lived in a $10 a month garage while owning a mountain

The movie is also peppered with stock footage from Hollywood events and pretend to "star" these actors! Huh? What a rip off.

The original segments are largely filmed silent and overdubbed with some creepy overacted voice over.

This movie is so tedious, it's beyond belief. The "underbelly" of Hollywood isn't underbelly at all. Surfers? A guy who lives in a garage? Who cares? I suppose Beuasoleil is the only draw for this film. An somehow this cold blooded murderer who is now in prison for life, has a facebook and web-page selling his crap! Huh?

I was also on the look out for Rodney Bingheimer, but never saw him, except in the credits. Guess I blinked.

This movie is absolutely the lowest of the low in movie-making.
