02.27.06Music Monday I really can't believe this movie exists. Written by Buck Henry based on a book co-written by Terry Southern, starring the cluelessly innocent and lovely Ewa Aulin as a sort of pure light force that's really really hot. She stumbles from situation to situation, meeting all these people who want to bone her. What makes it interesting is that the guys whom she meets - these guys that all want to bone her - are the likes of Walter Matthau, Ringo Starr, John Astin, Sugar Ray Robinson, Richard Burton, John Huston, James Coburn, Charles Aznavour, and marlon freakin brando. The movie is so completely absurd... and somewhat lewd but also really episodic and just plain-ass strange. it felt like The Muppet Movie mixed with Tarzoon and just a touch of Barbarella. I was sitting there watching it and just not believing that this actually existed. Oh, The Byrds did the soundtrack I think... and Dean "Godfather" Tavoularis designed the production, and Douglas Trumbull did some effects for it. I mean, why haven't I ever heard of this before? Probably because it's absolutely crazy like some weird almost-sexploitation picture with an archetypal late-60s end sequence which I've never seen anything like it except the ending of The 40-Year Old Virgin. But man, this movie was so funny... it did get a bit long and strange at the end but especially in the beginning it was hilarious. I think I need to get this on DVD if it's available.. just to have.
