Critic Reviews

  1. An amazing artifact; the decor and lighting mix '70s tackiness with odd '50s touches, the sound design is elaborate.
  2. 30
    That this mime show works better than it should is, in a sense, the ultimate dis.
  3. It's sad and misguided and boring.
  4. 25
    Presumably Zane & Co. had a lot more fun filming this inexplicable low-budget indulgence than any sane person will have watching it.
  5. 3
    Sitting through the film is like Chinese water torture, for sure, and for reasons beyond the forced, idiotic campiness of the thing. For one thing, there is not one word of dialogue.

    Different from the film Wood would have made, but like his films it is a piece of oddball genius mistaken for trash. Zane is godlike (again).
