Did You Know?


Agnes Varda originally wanted Jim Morrison to play one of the male leads. He declined, though he visited the production during filming and can be briefly seen as an audience member of the theater performance of "The Beard" in the opening scene. See more »

Not worth your time
8 August 2006 | by simoneswansonSee all my reviews

The movie is totally a waste of precious time unless you are a great fan of any of the actors involved or like to see news clips of the 60's in California. The best part is the first part of the movie showing a scene out of a play "the Beard" with Billie Dixon and Richard Bright, but that is just about all you are going to see of Richard Bright. There seems to be no structure, no set script. I think anybody could have done a better job with other wanna be actors and a camcorder. I cant believe they wasted so much time on a scene where they were too lazy to get out of bed to order or make coffee. At the end you will be slapping yourself in the face either to wake yourself up or to scold yourself for the fact that you watched the whole thing from beginning to end.
