Let's Go To The Movies

I watched the Fellini Satyricon last night.

Oh my dog, what a trip. I don't think I've seen anything this profoundly fucked before. I'm a big David Lynch fan, but this outpaces even his skullfuckery. Even weirder than El Topo. You will want to keep the bong and the amyl nitrate close for this mammyjammer.

The storyline is...


I have no idea. Slave boys, gibbering midgets, luxury drunk Roman consuls, priapism, spotty subtitling, lavish, deranged sets-Fellini deserves credit for keeping the whole mess in control. It's a filmic travesty, and an insult to good taste-so see it.
