I first watched this film in 1977 at a late night double screening in San Francisco, along with Eraser Head. The movie blew me away, but even more astounding was the audience participation, which included full costumes, sex in the aisles, lighters going off at key moments, and perfectly synced audience dialogue. After that, I decided to watch it whenever possible in other cities too. Chicago was outrageously wild, with the police frisking everyone before they could go in. But the most boring rendition was in London, which really surprised me. I ended up watching it 17 times all over the world. Then, in 2009, I decided to take another look at it and see if it held up. Incredibly, I liked it even more! What a wonderful piece of filmmaking! If you haven't seen it, watch it late at night so the mood is right, and prepare for an unforgettable experience.
