Eclipse 1966: Chafed Elbows

I don’t know. This feels pretty self indulgent. I mean, it’s a parody of underground movies — some references to Warhol and stuff, but the aesthetics are straight out of 50s B movies, so it feels like it’s just… missing the point?

It’s pretty amusing… it’s mostly still photography with voiceovers. But a lot of still photography.

But as with Babo 73, the aesthetics are … er… not there. It’s pedestrian and unambitious — it’s a bunch of people that had a lot of fun making this? But it’s just not that interesting to watch.

Heh heh. I thought they looked kinda similar.


Hippies, man.

Chafed Elbows. Robert Downey Sr.. 1966.
