    Psychomania

    ★★★

    Stands out as representing a free wheeling era of British culture, not quite mod, not quite hippie, but somewhere in between. The premise and execution is rather silly even if daring. The characters are thinly drawn and there isn’t much depth to the underlying spiritual lore, but the film is enjoyable just because of the oddity. It isn’t every film where you see people wearing death masks on motorcycles and talking about suicide as if it is inconsequential.

  • The Decameron

    ★★★½

    Evidence that 1970s Italians prioritized sex over dentistry.

    ★★★★★

    No idea how many times I've seen this. 6? 10? But not for awhile, and it blew me away all over again. I wish it was twice as long.

  • Woodshock

    Woodshock

    ★★★

    The best part is seeing a young Daniel Johnston, proud McDonalds employee, promoting his new album.
