Amusing, 17 December 2014
Author: timlin-4 from United States

Switches between a reenactment of the assassination of Garfield, a documentary about a singles bar, a public service message about clothing your animals, scenes of a Revolutionary War soldier wandering through '60s New York City, and a story involving the a rape of a plump woman. And it's all fairly amusing, though rather pointless, basically the YouTube experience of its day. But it probably holds up better with time: though the production is primitive, grainy black and white footage with mostly no audio except a pleasantly ironic soundtrack, it's competently made and doesn't waste time, and there are even some twists at the end.
