Like a combination giallo and afterschool special, or maybe an Expressionist silent remade for TV. Decadent aristocrats who look like they're from Wisconsin, porn production about brain transplants, and so on.... That and a surplus of pointless plot. Gretta is hired by some bargain-basement Baudelaire from her gig selling popcorn at a carnival to be chastely loved by him--and make blue movies. The world's oldest-looking pre-med student sees her humping Davy Crockett, and, just like in André Breton's Nadja, the impossible quest begins. All the dialogue and acting are terrible, but absolutely mesmerizing in a glue-sniffing, delirious kind of way. There are two narrators, and resurrection plays a key role, too. This is just the tip of the iceberg. See it for yourself.

Entertaining!!! Hard to categorize this film....comedy, drama, thriller. But fun throughout, and sexy!!!

Review available soon over at theaterofguts.com here's a sample "

All I remember from the snippets re-edited into the other movie were the adorable babe who plays Gretta, she looks like Caroline Munro's sexy teenage sister. Also a Lionel Richie looking dude who turns into a puppet and a lesbian who resembled Dave Foley (who may or may not be the protagonist), read on for more info."
