So this is what they did before public access!
29 February 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

A rambling incoherent collection of commentary, skits and "psychedelic" imagery.

Unless you have a historical interest about a particular person featured in the mess I would avoid watching this. I got it from a friend because a mutual friend of ours was in it. I tried to sit through it but was reduced to fast forwarding. I almost never do that.

If there was some sort of connecting thread between all the stuff that happens it would be bearable. The only thing I could see was a need for the director to get some counter-culture filler between his animated collages of newspapers and magazines and shots of naked women. He must have had a lot of fun filming them. The director's leaning are clear when he gives a lot of screen time to Al Goldstein of Screw Magazine.

Richard Pryor tries hard but, like most stand up comics, his routines flop without a live audience to bounce off of. One of the Ace Trucking, Co. skits did make me smile and it's interesting to see a young Fred Willard.

Be forewarned, some of the people listed as appearing are on very briefly. This one is barely worth a dollar in the second-hand shop.
