Very strange movie about a boy working on wings and planning to fly away. Or at least about the Houston Astrodome. Oh yeah, there's some murder and sex. And some sort of Oedipal thing. Also, Margaret Hamilton (the Wicked Witch) appears in a cameo, sounding like her character from 1939. And there's some sort of Wizard of Oz statement being made. Ruby slippers, girls dressed up like Dorothy. Whatever. A waste of time. Some will pretend to like this eccentric mess, I suppose, but trust me, nobody is popping this in the VCR after seeing it once.
