PICK-UP (1975)



 I have a bunch of these drive-in classics/exploitation DVD box-sets chock full of movies by Crown International Pictures and quite a few of them, just like this one here, have no plots whatsoever. Know while this might be a good thing maybe if they filled it with action of some sort this one doesn't have much in the way of excitement either. The story, what there is of one, involves a hippie fellow driving a mobile home around Florida and picking up a couple of hippie gals. One of which is really into tarot cards and astrology and other nonsense. She also seems to hallucinate a bunch so we're never even sure what's real or not and it's hard to really care much. A creepy clown, a politician, a rapey/feely priest and a bunch of horny redneck rapists show up from time to time. Our more spacey but less retarded hippie lady has sex with the Greek god Apollo sorta and it all ends with a 70's downer ending. Except they even mess that up. On the positive side I will say the camerawork here is really excellently done with some really cool artsy shots. Too bad it's wasted on such a pointless film. Also there's lots of nudity and nakedness and the two leads are quite eye-catching. I assume this film was meant to be shown at an actual drive-in back in the 70's where no one would be paying attention to what was going on and that would be the best way to view it if you had to.
