Adolfas Mekas made his mark in American independent filmmaking with this avant-garde comedy that shook up film festivals circa 1963. Although it is said to have inspired Andy Warhol, it’s its own animal entirely, eighty minutes of cinematic frivolity that’s too sincere to be a parody of the filmic conventions it so happily celebrates. With rare extras, including a 1963 TV discussion between Adolfas Mekas, Richard Roud, Amos Vogel and Joseph Losey. On Blu-ray from Kino Classics.
