weird collection of short vignettes
2 October 2010 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Campy, kitchy, men dressing up as women. Retro kitchen floors and black and white film. This Kuchar brothers film from 1967 is a grouping (and groping) of a couple short vignettes. One scene is out on the sidewalk, one is a strange scene between husband and wife in their kitchen, and in one scene, we watch Marilyn Marmoset roll around like a cross between Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, and an aging European movie star. Then they send in the UFOs. (really!!) nothing really makes sense, so I suspect it's an experiment in visual effects and audience buy-in. Probably a good thing that it's not very long. Anything longer would be too much. Fun way to kill 20 minutes, though. The Kuchar brothers had been making films for 10 years by this time, but it was still in their early years.
