Originally a twenty five hour film made up of shorter film segments. It consists of 83 reels each lasting approximately 33 minutes. A short story odyssey of film designed to be shown with two projectors playing simultaneously.
i just came back from a screening of this film during the film-fest here in Harrisburg, pa and man it took a lot of restraint not to walk out of it. i can't believe i sat through the whole thing. this has got to be one of the worst films i've ever seen. a lot of people were walking out of it but i braved the boredom only to feel that my time was completely wasted. and it had nothing to do with experimental films, of which i've seen many and have loved. this film made ed wood look like a brilliant filmmaker. this movie was pointless and meandering. no plot, which is OK but the whole movie was just a bunch of scenes that really didn't transition well with each other. in attendance at the screening was the films star Taylor Mead which made it a more memorable experience. he even said the film was boring and thanked the crowd for their patience. to me this movie proves that Warhol didn't have much talent when it came to making films. Mead said he liked boring things and didn't want plot, only relationships. well this films shows that very well. i caution anyone who gets the chance to see this monstrosity of a film, be prepared to be bored out of your skull. and another thing, i really got tired of looking at Taylor Mead's butt through the whole film. a young Dennis hopper makes an appearance in the film.
