Trivia

Record producer Mickie Most originally conceived this as a vehicle for Paul McCartney in the role of Clavius, but he was offered the role during the time of the break-up of The Beatles in 1970 and declined it. When Most met up with McCartney he later described him as "looking a bit like Jim Morrison after a bender". See more »

A weird acid trip of a movie
3 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a fan of obscure movies I found out about this little oddity and got a copy of it on DVD. I've always liked Sondra Locke and Richard Dreyfuss is OK in my book so I figure what the heck lets check it out.Man this film is a trip back in time for sure.All the surealness and hipness was very representative of the late 60's/early 70's era.As stated by another reviewer here it's story is incoherent and never does come together but you keep watching to see what happens in the end.It's bizarre but entertaining to a point.Dreyfuss was very young in this movie.Sondra Locke never looked better in any other movie I've seen her in.Maybe it was because she was being cast as a female Jesus but she does look divine as Suzanne.Handled by better filmmakers this could've been a really good film.As it is it's a good little novelty to see and reflect on how movie making has changed in the last 30+ years.A side note future director Penelope Spheeris is one of Logan's female disciples wearing mime style face paint.
