Superb in its original context
on November 8, 2003
The airhead reviewer "drollere" can't step out of his/her timeframe to appreciate this movie, which shows very well the almost limitless energy and optimism of the early 1960s, a period I lived through and remember very well; it's hard to believe it ever happened, given the severely repressed and depressed state of modern culture. When film makers try to reproduce those times now, all they get is a fake surface, as in the 2003 movie, "Down with Love". I'm not saying that "The Nude Set" is a great movie, it's not, but it represents the SPIRIT of those times perfectly, and that's why I've watched it several times -- it takes me out of the Baby Bush Repressed Universe.
