Quotes

Y. Y. Go: Why don't I just boil away, like the green stuff on dirty water? Maybe it's because I have too much juice left. I haven't used up half my heartbeats, or any of my ambition. Maybe I've been... saving something.

The Stranger Side of Buddhism
4 December 2005 | by (ri) – See all my reviews

Burgess Meredith's only attempt at film-making is a strange mesh of Eastern Philosophy and The 60's Batman show. The first thing you should know is that the narrator of this film is actually the Buddha and the premise is, more or less, the Fu Man Chu/Dr. No bad guy Mr. Go is inexplicably "enlightenened" by the Buddha's eye into becoming good. See strange psychedelic homosexual escapades with Jeff Bridges and a nauseating go-go soundtrack that will drill right into your head. All the fight scenes are right out of Batman. Good if somewhat boring movie, but you've got to love the strange premise. It's the ultimate 60's Buddhist experience.
