What The Hell Happened?

This is not what I expected to see. I attribute this to the weirdness of the movie I'm watching - "Cisco Pike". It's not what I expected to see either. It isn't a lively time capsule of Los Angeles in the early 70's. For the most part its a listless, meandering, stoner talkfest. Kris Kristoferson is in every scene and he (under)plays them all as the brooding hippie loner, pissed off at the evil hypocrisy of The Man. Harry Dean Stanton arrives to liven things up but that lasts for about five minutes.

Now its off to Hollywood Forever, the cemetery that screens movies on the wall of Rudolph Valentino's mausoleum. Tonight it's "A Place In The Sun."
