Yep, still love the fuck out of this movie.
I don't think there was a movie that had more for the highschool version of me to like: post apocalypse, cybernetic hands, evil robuts, industrial music, blood and gore, hot redheads... Iggy Pop as the radio DJ... come on. Man...
It still works I think although sometimes you can see the budget... but still. The depth of the world, the unique quality of the style and design... the creativity of the whole thing is really impressive both for it's time and for today. If you look at a movie like Riddick which I think is pretty comparative, you get the CG stuff but where are the extreme close-ups of hurped-up sweaty lips and robut-vision nudity? And wipperly wopperly songs? Man... the love affair continues. What a great movie.
I can't wait to devour the special features on this as well. Richard Stanley's appearance at the fest proved to me that he is a fascinating storyteller and I'm sure there's a lot of stories on this disc. That will have to wait though... because tonight I'm going to try and end this fest with a bang.
