Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One Review


Good
William Greaves had some brass balls in making the obliquely-titled Symbiopyschotaxiplasm, namely by auditioning a bunch of film students and hiring a bunch of crew members for a movie that didn't exist. He then proceeded to screw with their heads, mixing things up on them and otherwise making life miserable, while filming everything that went on behind the scenes (rehearsals, complaining, homeless people interviewed). It's too bad that the film's production values scrape rock bottom -- even by low budget standards. Much of the movie is inaudible, and the scratched up film stock gives you a headache from the get-go. The editing is also surprisingly quite poor, considering how much of this experimental film hinges upon the way it is put together.

Play It Again, Sam Review


OK
Woody Allen has made a scant few appearances in films he didn't also direct. This is one of the better ones, an adaptation of his stage play by director Herbert Ross, best known for teaming him for the first time with Diane Keaton, a watershed moment no matter how you cut it. The story's a bit silly: Allen is a nebbish film critic who's getting divorced. To help him back into the game, he envisions Humphrey Bogart to help him woo women (including his best friend's wife, Keaton). Naturally, scenes from various Bogie movies are re-enacted and perverted for the purpose of comedy.

Montenegro Review


Good
Dusan Makavejev's Montenegro is one of his most twisted works, as well as one of the most engaging. Susan Anspach stars as a housewife -- who, as soon becomes apparent, is obviously insane. She cooks the family a meal... then eats it herself. She puts poison in the dog's food bowl... then tells the dog it's up to him whether or not he eats it. Soon enough, she finds herself on a visit with a group of equally strange Yugoslavians, and she spends a few days soaking up the atmosphere in a seedy strip club. Eventually, she returns home, obviously no better off than when she left. (Allegedly this is based on a true story, but I just don't buy it...) The beginning of the movie is extremely engrossing, but just when you think Susan's journey is going to amount to something, Makavejev resorts to his old shock-value tricks -- in this case, lots of male nudity and a dildo mounted to a remote-controlled toy tank which chases a girl around the strip club stage for five minutes. Tell us a real story, Dusan, instead of giving us some hokey nonsense.

Jack Nicholson.s Secret Daughter


Jack Nicholson Rebecca Broussard Lorraine Susan Anspach

Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson has a secret eight-year-old love child in New York he's been discreetly taking care of.

Sources tell American tabloid the STAR that the actor has been making generous payments for the child's care and education to the young girl's mother - a former waitress called JENNINE GOURIN, who became pregnant by the legendary lothario at the tender age of 20 after a year-long affair, during Nicholson's separation from his then-girlfriend Rebecca Broussard.

A source says, "Jack's daughter is just getting old enough to start asking sensitive questions about her daddy and the family situation. It must be a confusing and difficult time for her.
