Odd.
3 May 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Ron Rice film is from "American Film Treasures/Avant Garde Film: Disc 2"--a compilation of mostly forgotten art films of the 20th century. This DVD set is NOT for the casual viewer and sometimes I wonder why I watched the films--as some of them were VERY artsy and weird!

Through much of the film, you see various members of Andy Warhol's inner circle--so fans of Warhol's might appreciate this more than most. Often, the scenes consist of overlapping 2-3 images at the same time--especially in first portion of film as well as towards the end. The music is discordant and is quite difficult on the ears to say the least. There are some odd looking and not so odd looking folks mostly lying about doing very little. There is no dialog but the film is in color. And if you are expecting much to happen, then you'll probably be a bit frustrated. The film, to me, looks more like something for these folks to watch and enjoy and outsiders need not. It defies a numerical score--very artsy and only for a very small group of aficionados.
