We’ve got a seriously weird puppet movie with “Live Freaky, search Die Freaky” and a seriously weird comedy about air drumming (yes, you read that right) with “Adventures of Power.”
Chris also introduced us to one of the strangest low-budget sci-fi films we’ve ever seen, “The American Astronaut.” It’s as if David Lynch did a space truckers movie… with music and dancing. We kid you not.
Finally, what may be the smartest, sexiest send up of exploitation movies we’ve ever seen, “Viva” hits all the right notes. If you put this on your DVD player and don’t warn your guests, they’ll think you simply hit the jackpot in finding the weirdest relic from 1972. It’s not, though. It’s a masterfully crafted homage to natural bodies and macrame in one of the most quotable movies in years.
