Trivia

At the end of the film, Little Moon says to Jebediah that he has killed everyone but the cameraman. Jebediah turns around and shoots the cameraman (who falls to the ground with the camera now filming from a low angle) breaking the fourth wall. See more »

Goofs

When Little Moon kills the hare/ rabbit with the sling, the shots of the hare/ rabbit show it to be in a completely different environment - more grass, less rocks. See more »

Incomprehensible jumble set to annoying music
24 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst movies ever! How did it take three people to write a story with nearly no dialog and very little plot? How did anyone get talked into financing this bomb? How did they manage to get James Caan and SAMMY DAVIS JR.! to appear in this thing? I think this movie gave Sammy Davis Jr. cancer. He probably never let Sinatra or Dean Martin know he was in this thing. It is that utterly bad. It is more confusing than some bizarre Fellini flick. I watched the whole thing and I have NO idea what it is about, just a collection of scenes that don't add up to a story. I don't know what any of it means - the cockfighting, the woman and little kid getting shot, the two hookers (?) getting into a fight, the wrestling match in the bar (which is perpetually in a fight scene), the cowboy singing 'Abide With Me' every so often. Weird, weird, weird. Maybe it would make sense if you watched it on LSD, since it was apparently written under that influence. I can't recall another movie which has left me feeling so stunned, like 'What the HECK was that?' No wonder it's in the public domain; nobody would have spent the few dollars to keep the copyrights going. Wow. This whole movie makes no sense whatever.
