first impression
3 February 2004 | by darostSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1970 in Philadelphia when it was first released as the second part of a double feature, following Fellini Satyricon. The comment I made when I left the theater (I had graduated from high school only a few days earlier) was, "They co-opted the revolution." If that sentence makes sense to you then you'll understand my reaction. If it doesn't, I can't explain.

Peace! David
