Comedy if you have to the patience and are not too uptight.
26 January 2015 | by WmCT111See all my reviews

5 out of 10 for the story concept itself. Over all Oscar consideration, none. Over all film considerations, this is the sort of film I would call a concept film now, where we look at something and then set about fixing it.

In Reply to Bizarre, OK, well, if what you have said is true, then the ending makes perfect sense. There were a number of moments in the film where we get to see some interesting contrasts in culture in America for the relative time period for which the film is taking place, with the contrast in cultures from Hippies to the Bikers average "square" and the general/military complex. The ending makes a lot of sense in respect to where and when the ending takes place. I think it makes an excellent shock to the viewer. Films not for everyone and compared to similar style films involving drag queens, this was certain low budget, extremely low budget. Looking back in on culture, the shock at the end fits with culture.
