absolutely. i saw this movie in the middle of the night when i was a child, or perhaps when i was a young teenager. that was more than thirty years ago. i was impressed by the performances of jane fonda, michael sarrazin, susannah york, et al. i haven't gotten around to seeing it because i've been preoccupied with indie films from the seventies and eighties, sci fi pictures, and horror movies. perhaps one day i should make a concerted effort to view (or re-view) some of the "artistically ambitious" films of the sixties, movies such as "flim flam" (with michael sarrazin), "the illustrated man," and "they shoot horses, don't they?"
p.s.l--"they shoot horses, don't they?" IS an odd duck of a movie. an ugly yet at the same time beautiful duckling of a movie. it's much more artistically ambitious and "darker" than most of the american-produced films of the sixties. it might be thought of as having the same kind of "vibe" as "easy rider" or even peter bogdanovich's "targets."
