Excellent student film effort for 1968

Author: ( from United States
22 July 2005

Reviewers disparaging this film may want to take into account that this was the first film effort of John Milius. Milius (Apocalypse Now, Conan, Jaws, Dirty Harry, 1941, Wind and the Lion etc.) was a 22 year-old film student at USC when he created this animated feature.

It was a student effort. It was not intended to be a finished commercial film.

Although the production is crude, the film deserves judgment on the basis of the depth of its story line. The story line is about the lack of depth and meaning in pop culture in the U.S. at the time (1966).

Milius does not strive to create "pretty" films. He strives for a deep story line, with "powerful and meaningful" images.

This film is the start of his unique style. It is a style that is emerging, after decades, as a unique characteristic of American Film that has had an uncredited influence on filmmakers across the globe for close to fifty years.

This film is important because it was the beginning point for Milius' contribution of a style emphasizing depth and meaning in American popular films.
