The first time I saw this movie, back in Berkeley in the late 1970s, I almost walked out of the theater because it hit me hard. I was reviewing movies for a small weekly newspaper and knew that this was a controversial movie but I wasn’t ready for the images on that big screen. When I saw it years later, I nervously laughed at the scenes that had previously challenged my “free love,” “liberal” tendencies.
That this movie is playing in the local library here in Puerto Vallarta is amazing to me. I’m sure that it will be the truncated 90 minute version and not the uncensored 160 minute version, but, hey, what the heck…. Not much is left to the imagination in any version. I’m going to this showing simply to see the audience reaction.
