some super groovy dialogue

This is likable enough, well shot and colourful with some super groovy dialogue, thanks to Donald Cammell but I didn't feel this was wholly successful. James' Fox and Mason are great, not so sure about Coburn and Alderton tries just a little too hard and ends up helping to make some of the scenes more silly than I would have liked. Susannah York looks as lovely as she ever has but she doesn't convince me that she is as interested in the guys as she makes out and I feel there are dozens of girls, who in 1968, would have made a better job of the role. Apparently filmed in and around Almeria with the 'Tangiers' scenes actually the old streets of the Spanish town, more famous, of course for its connections with spaghetti westerns. I love the films of the time, that this should have been more like and my own favourites can be found in my 'Acid Erotica' list on 'Letterboxd'.
