Format: VHS Tape
After working on Easy Rider, Terry Southern began collaborating with Aram Avakian on an intense adaptation of John Barth's debut novel. Shot in the summer and fall of 1968, when America was reeling from assasinations, the quagmire of Vietnam, rioting and ideological meltdown, the resulting film transforms Barth's existential character study into a chilling, visually stunning critique of political, sexual and cultural dysfunction. If the film's reach sometimes exceeds its grasp, there is still much that astonishes in this rarely screened film: the superb acting by Stacy Keach, James Earl Jones, Dorothy Tristan and Harris Yulin; the feature film debut of legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis; the haunting opening montage that relate's the lead's typical boomer upbringing against the horrorshow of post-WWII history; the music supervised by jazz producer George Avakian; and last, but not least, the uncompromising visionary screenplay by Terry Southern, Aram Avakian and Dennis McGuire. If you are a big fan of such end-of-sixties films as Performance and Two-Lane Blacktop, this is definitely your cup of tea.

A wonderful piece of counter-cultural cinema.
Available at last on dvd.
Gives the viewer the opportunity to fully understand the work cinematographer Gordon Willis did with colors and composition.
Avakian's sense of editing is prevalent here too.
Amazing performances by the leading actors and a great example of the strengths of Terry Southern's tragicomic prose.

Format: DVD
I read John Barth's novel when I was in college, and though I don't remember it too well, I do remember that, like all his work, one reading is enough. The point is always pretty flawlessly etched in your conscience, whether you like what you've learned or not.
Aram Avakian's film of it is something of a temporal compression, but there's also a lot of bizarre happenings going on at the centre for psychic Remobilization (The Farm) at the end of it's country road. James Jack Horner (Keach) is taken there by "Dr. D." (Jones) after his discovery as catatonic on a train platform, I guess somewhere around Baltimore. There the psychiatric "practitioner" (?) brings him back to consciousness and mental alertness, and sends him off to find work as a teacher at a nearby junior college. While there, he meets faculty member Joe Morgan, and
his wife, Rennie, and eventually seduces her. Then she becomes pregnant, and after the three of them stare at a loaded revolver for awhile, Jack decides he can provide Rennie with an abortionist, who finally turns out to be his own shrink, Dr. D. (Jones). The abortion is a failure, and Rennie (Dorothy Tristan) dies on Dr. D's table.
The institute scenes are pretty raunchy and depressing (crazy even for the late sixties), and Jones has a wonderful time with Keach's "white man's burden" ("Me monkey? YOU monkey!! Haw-ha.") But I still prefer the book ending, with Horner stepping into a cab after the unsuccessful operation. When the driver asks him where to, he simply says "terminal," the last word of the book. Like the fetus he found expendable, his life will dwindle down to "little, less, nothing.". With the book, as I said, it's indelibly etched.
