Review
To spark up or not to spark up? This rambling, flamboyant, incoherent ‘head movie' should be approached with caution by anyone who hasn't got any drugs in their system. In the Napoleonic wars, an officer finds an old book that relates his grandfather's story. On a trip to Madrid a Belgian soldier takes a short cut across the mountains, a land of robbers, body snatching gypsies and devils, and stays at an inn named the Venta Quemada....Luis Buńuel (who seldom viewed movies more than once) liked this film so much he watched it three times, ditto Scorcese, Coppola and Jerry Garcia!!
