A psychedelic mess
21 September 1999 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

A weird and hopeless mishmash of elements which will make you wonder how on earth this film ever got made and also why stars such as Jennifer Jones signed on in the first place. The plot revolves around an overweight young girl named Tara ("you know, after Gone With The Wind") whose life has been distorted by her rich parents who never loved her in the first place. She becomes involved with a rock singer and he and his group ingratiate themselves into her home and family. It is obvious that the film is supposed to be symbolic because we are continually shown a painting of the characters in morbid poses with their eyes gouged out, etc. but you would have to be on an acid trip to grasp them). Most of the lines are thrown in for shock value, and it is indeed shocking to hear Jennifer Jones (as Tara's mother) utter such lines as "I made 30 stag films and never faked an orgasm" or call her maid a "bloody sadistic dyke". A must see to believe it all but very bad cinema indeed.
