I didn't understand why this was tagged Bukowski, 'til I read the trivia section at IMDb. 'Think I'll go cry.

Wow. Three minutes was not enough! Mark my words... the van trend will return.

According to IMDB, this came out two months before Star Wars! There goes my theory that SW was the inspiration for the design.

Aw, man, only one copy on Amazon and it's thirty-six bucks.

Uhm. So I guess I wasn't hallucinating that I just saw Charles Bukowski.

That mermaid on the van at 3:04 mark looks like Madonna. How did they know?

Penelope said...

I think Bukowski was seriously freaking out that girl with the runny mascara.

And is it just me or is there something weirdly fetishist about this film?

Dead Fish Hands said...

Awwww. Poor Bukowski is trying so hard to get laid and it's not working out for him at all.

Noticed, at 2:38, the reflection of the camera crew on the mermaid van.

i have a feeling this film was born from a pot deal gone bad.

And for one month in 1977, the van was king!

If you drive a van that looked like that today, you would most likely be on a sex offenders list somewhere.

Bukowski seems to have been the most normal thing about this movie.

I had to come back and watch this thing again, I just love it so much.

Someone please send help.

If you see this van a-rock'n, it's just Bukowski vomiting.
