"Your Time Is Now (or before)"
28 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this weird assed film short recently on the Arts Channel (a free station offering short snippets of Classical & Jazz,along with film shorts,and excerpts of (some) classic films. This film short was directed by the legendary bad film director, William "one shot" Beaudine (aptly named for his penchant of using any take,no matter how good or bad it was), who directed such film classics as "The Bowery Boys Meet A Brooklyn Gorilla" & "The Ape Man". This film short reminded me of an uber surreal film I saw a few years back entitled "Dreams That Money Can Buy", about a dream agent that sets up various people with the kind of dreams one would probably experience after a midnight snack of fried clams & a chocolate malted. It would probably make for a perfect short film opening for such films as "W.R.:Mysteries Of The Organism", or even "Reefer Madness". I'm just wondering if this film short is available on DVD, or even the old school VHS format (I know that companies such as Video Wizard or Weirdo Video,that gets all sorts of whacked out film fare would probably have something like this available for mail order). A strange little item that's worth seeking out.
