I would catch it if I could.
30 October 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When I was 16, in 1976, I was meant to be doing homework and subconsciously searching for role models other than Ernest Borgnine when I came accross this movie on TV. It instantly changed my perception on several fronts. It was everything I was looking for; absurdity, animal liberation, sexual references and more.

My predicament is this. I have not seen the movie again and rely on my old brain to recollect that magnificent hour and a half. [true] Perhaps others can relate to this. There is a part of me that wants to see the movie again and another part that wants to hold onto the glorious image of 1976. In any case it is unobtainable in this country. I appreciate the space for expressing my feelings, seriously.
