5.0 out of 5 stars Scary good, March 25 2002
This review is from: Hissing of Summer Lawns (Audio CD)
Interestingly, I'm a big Zappa fan, and Joni's music is pretty much as far removed from Frank's as you can get. But you know what? This CD just freaks me out. "Edith and the Kingpin" has to be one of the most moving songs ever written--I don't weep over many songs, but I do over this one, time after time. The whole CD (and many of her other CDs) is just pure, no nonsense, honest emotion--emotion that just happens to come from a truly amazing musician. Buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a complete, utter piece of crap!, Feb. 9 2001
If you somehow get suckered into watching this pretentious pile of garbage, at least wait until you get to the scene where the protagonist is trying to convince the young soldier to return in the morning and bury him. The soldier's response will tell you everything you need to know about this film: He jumps out of the car and runs for his life. Believe me, you should take the hint.
My barometer of a bad movie is how well it might serve as "Mystery Science Theater 3000" fodder. (And believe me, the people who have praised this movie as some sort of "high art" are not MST3K fans, primarily because they don't have 1/64th of the needed intelligence and sense of humor.) This "movie" would be torn apart by Mike and the 'Bots--I just wish they were still around to do it....
Let's have an omelet!
