Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll
29 February 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the weirdest films I've ever seen. On one hand, it looked like a commune of hippies got hold of some film and went to town with a loose script and so many drugs it made me feel high just watching.

The narrative is a trainwreck of allegory, an appeal to the imagination of a restless generation. The fables within not only send up the politics and dirty tricks of an era, but also poke plenty of fun at the supposed change makers and scene shakers themselves.

Loose as a goose, with tons of real sex, drugs and rock and roll, Gold is an unfiltered view into a tumultuous era, and lots of fun to boot.
