go ed wood!, 30 April 2005
Author: artstudent13 from United States

yes ed wood wrote most the lines. cool as in 1972 he he... and i do see it as his best work. very deep story with good attempts at special effects like color changes to match the mood of the Sean and groovy camera work in the orgy Sean. it goes from loving couple to wild swingers and back to reality and a chance for a new start at the end. you will love this little masterpiece of 1972 indie. to bad ed wood only got a slight mention at the end. acting is good and 1972 cool as well:) hope you can see this awesome film!!! more films of this style were made in the same time frame and show same coolness combo of stephen and ed.
