Do Jackalope postcards hold fancy to you? If not, best to stay away from this one.
Not for the artistically squeamish, you have to be very comfortable with sloooow, zero-plot, flicks to make it through this one. Made for $2K, it's about a guy, and Butte Montana. It's more of a time capsule of 70's kitsch than artistic relevance/genius. I came across this while looking for another Rancho Deluxe, and oh my how I was wrong. Well..., not entirely. For both movies you have to bring to the table a healthy serving of humor in order to participate effectively. Rorschach Response: Herzog, textual, latent humor, Stroszek, Rancho Deluxe, John Cassavetes, Patsy Cline.... I see this movie is on Rosenbaum's "Alternate 100" list. So it has that.
