Andy Warhol does it again!
12 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I would've lived in the 60s or 70s. Those two decades must've been off the hook! I'm giving this one a ten, a perfect ten! It has everything I like about independent films, It is off beat, cool, different, inventive, hilarious, wacky, funny, sexy, wild, surprising and totally entertaining! Jack Palance, yes, leadies and gentlemen, THAT Jack Palance, Hollywood legend (remember his Oscar ripe "Shayne"?) is insanely cool as "Raf", the rock band's wild and crazy manager. And Andy Warhol as the "detective" who spies around with his polaroid camera, is totally insane too, what a combination, Palance and Warhol, but it's these kinds of decision director Lommel made that make this film such an experience! It's only 85 minutes long, but those 86 minutes got it going, ladies and gentlemen. On top of it all a musical score performed by Tom Sullivan and his band, with a bunch of hot songs like "We're just Cocaine Cowboys". I love this film!
