"No More Electrical Bills...No More Blowing Your Fuse"
24 May 2009 | by druid333-2See all my reviews

Robert Frank is somewhat of a enigma as a film maker. He is probably best known for his banned documentary of the Rolling Stones 1972 tour, 'C********r Blues' (which even today cannot be screened due to legal issues,plus you know that even most art cinemas won't place the title in it's adverts,much less the marquee),as well as 'Pull My Daisy',from 1959 (with a screenplay written by Beat Generation poet,Jack Kerouac). 'Energy And How To Get It',from 1981 concerns Robert Golka, a scientist who wants to generate free electricity to the masses. The only thing blocking his vision is the government power agency,headed up by a money hungry power Czar (played by writer William S.Burroughs). The film seems to want to teeter somewhere between a documentary & a docudrama. Avant Garde poet, John Giorno is also on hand as Burrough's right hand man,as well as a musical appearance by Dr.John & Libby Titus. The film's grainy black & white photography gives it a nice kitchen sink look. Worth taking a look at for mostly fans of Burroughs. No MPAA rating, but does contain some raunchy language
