What a delightfully odd and surprising entry in sexploitation features of the era. It's more than a little interested in surreal fantasy imagery, homoeroticism (not a big surprise perhaps given that the sibling directors later went from straight to gay porn), and other aspects very bizarre and ambitious for "skin flicks" at the time. I was also pretty surprised that there were hardcore interludes, though something I read online suggested that the filmmakers realized their movie was no longer marketable without those, so they shot some additional hardcore sequences to (ahem) insert. Still, this movie is dated 1970, and I didn't think there were any movies with graphic hardcore content playing U.S. porn theaters until at least a year or two later. Anyway, for a sex movie it's closer to cheap early 1960s Italian sword 'n' sorcery movies, that era's experimental cinema, Fellini imitation, and drive-in sci-fi/horror films than it is to most sexploitation of the period. I wonder if it had much commercial success. Certainly much of the raincoat crowd would have bolted by the time this very arty movie intercut a two-girls-plus-guy threeway with two guys making out very much on their own. There's a surprising Vietnam War commentary element, too.
