Nude Bill Paxton and Other Stuff
24 June 2019 | by xposipxSee all my reviews

If this plainly starred Paxton and did not contain the real sex scene and nudity, no one would care if it got lost in the shuffle. However, Vinegar Syndrome cleaned it up and brought us an amazing transfer. Sadly, the movie watches just as it sounds.

The visuals can be nice here and there and the basic plot is fine, but the gap in production and drug-induced student film style is apparent throughout. What begins as interesting quickly turns to double-subbed audio of a "big brother" type broadcasting news over the infrequent dialogue.

The rest is just a muddled mess of random ideas that may or may not have been in the original script (if there even was one). Unfortunately, this is just a blip in history that, to me, was a waste of the efforts of the good people at Vinegar Syndrome.
