Part two of the Bill Pullman double feature is this (to quote him) "Fantasia of the last days of Phillip K. Dick." In short, it's pretty inaccessible. I was strongly reminded of Brreakfast of Champions or Southland Tales, except I don't think this film is as bad as those. I think for hardcore Phil Dick fans this is pretty enjoyable. For casual fans (like myself) or others, perhaps not.
I will say that I very much enjoyed seeing Harold Perrineau playing Richard Roundtree and Charles Napier playing Charlton Heston. And Taryn Manning's breasts. And most of all Bill Pullman's performance. If it were a tour I'd say he qualifies for de-force status.
I should also mention that Bill Pullman was here to intro and Q&A both movies! He seemed pretty great and had no trouble filling the gaps with interesting stories, kooky mannerisms and pretty poor jokes. I loved it. I saw Earl from Ruthless People, Lone Star from Spaceballs, whoever he played in Lost Highway and Zero Effect all wrapped into one. It's funny; Tim kind of asked if these weird movies were the "real" Bill Pullman or if this was just a phase and I immediately remember the Zero Effect commentary where Jake Kasdan mentioned all the oddball ideas floating around in Bill's head. It makes perfect sense to me. I mean let's not forget that he was in Serpent and the Rainbow, not to mention Brain Dead (with his oft-confused Bill brother Paxton)... Those are pretty weird movies, man. So I commend Bill Pullman for staying true to his sensibilities after all these years. I think he's definitely a talented working actor that refuses to get lazy.
