Incomprehensible
1 May 2017 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Wow. It's always exciting to find a film on IMDb without a review, so here I am to fill the void. If only I had something good to say about Adieu, Babylone!, but alas - this is one of the most pointless, incomprehensible films I've ever seen (and I've seen a LOT). Directed by the erratic and unpredictable Fernando Arrabal and shot on video, the 'film' blends excerpts from earlier Arrabal flicks with contemporaneous 1992 footage of a young New Yorker named Lelia Fischer who likes to read Rimbaud, kiss fish, and put make-up on men. All of this is accompanied by the sort of overly flowery narration you would expect from the artiest of French art-house pics. There are some interesting shots of the Big Apple right on the cusp of its transition to a playground for the rich and unexpected appearances by Melvin Van Peebles and the young Spike Lee, but on balance this is a mess you can miss.
