The Plastic Dome of Norma Jean carries aspects of the free-wheeling free spirit 60s romp, but grounded in details and specifics and constrained by limited, though interesting and very photogenic, locations, it becomes an exploration of exploitation where the assertive take advantage of the meek or agreeable with increasing forcefulness.
The movie has a lot of similarities to French New Wave cinema as well as some absurdist elements. It also features a pretty good band.
The Plastic Dome of Norma Jean has a lot of flaws, but it also shows a lot of potential. It would have been interesting to see what director Juleen Compton might have done if she'd made more than just a few movies.
