There are several movies on at the Filmhouse which I hope to see over the coming weeks, including Beware of Mr Baker, about Ginger Bakes, and Village at the End of the World.
The one I braved the Edinburgh road diggings to see today was about a Norwegian lad who rebels against his bourgeois family and leaves them in order to team up with some hippies in Berlin. Like many hippies, they like to get nude, enjoy free sex and hope to save the world. Their unique way of saving the world involves forming a charity which sells access to their films of free sex, and they then travel to the South American forest to try to give the local indians the money they’ve made from their website. The locals view them with suspicion, and don’t want their money. Instead, they seem more interested in getting jobs and the latest model of chainsaw.
It is either a documentary/quasi-documentary, or it contains some of the best acting ever.
I had a problem figuring out how to ask for a ticket.
