Man of the Century - movie to see
Being There - Peter Sellers movie
Always wanted to see the Peter Sellers dad talks about it a lot, makes it sound pretty good. I got these from the movie reviews at John Tynes's site. Note the link on the side bar. Here's an excerpt: "Let My Puppets Come
Mind-blowingly bad 1970s hardcore porn flick with a cast of muppet-style puppets. My only guess is that the producers were so whacked on sex and cocaine that they convinced themselves this would be a brilliant idea. Terrible jokes, terrible music/dance numbers, and of course the sex is just for laughs; the opening sequence features a puppet woman doing it with her puppet dog, who promises her in a typical muppety voice, "Don't worry about the neighbors--I'm discreet!" Worth watching in some respects, such as for the amazing variety of hokey comedic sound effects that were already cliched twenty years earlier; hearing them in this film calls up memories of countless bad DePatie-Freleng cartoons. Has the sensibility of a borsch-belt comedy revue gone horrifyingly awry. Prefigures Peter Jackson's Meet the Feebles, but that film was creative, outrageous, and funny as hell; this one is just awful. "
