Not a Bad Film, Funny with Touches of Dramatic Realism
This is a very funny, interesting and worth-watching movie from the 70s. It ought to be seen as a product of the early American indie that helped kick-start the anti-Hollywood boom that mirrored the social and cultural changes happening in the 70s. I liked it and I recommend it to anyone who wants to experience something with a rebellious flair. This film has an edge, not unlike Mean Streets or even Repo Man, and it addresses social issues while maintaining a satirical tack. I love movies from the 60s and 70s because they were made before the whole PG-13 watering down of American Cinema, before political correctness took hold of Hollywood, and before we all thought that we already knew everything there was to know.
