film review (TV36)

Great movie;my all time favorite for the last 20 years
10/10
I first saw this movie at least 20 years ago on a small, snowy satellite dish. I was so taken with it that I've strived ever since to get a viewable copy. Thanks to IMDb, I now have a excellent copy on DVD. If this were not a very off the wall movie, I'm sure there would be Cole Notes on it by now as it has many subtle and not so subtle undertones of philosophy, religion, incest, ribaldry, and many other descriptive words and phrases too number's to mention. In searching for other movies of this same type, I followed reviews and purchased 4 Tromeo movies. NOT! There is absolutely no comparison. Whereas Greaser's Palace has as many complexities as you wish there to be, Tromeo movies are just simple toilet humor. No comparison at all. This video is delightfully irreverent and will appeal most to those who have studied many of the religions of the world and found them wanting. It helps to have a ribald, off the wall sense of humor too.

Robert Downey Sr. delivers strange laughs in a comical surreal western.
10/10
"Greasers Palace" is a wacky and strange western filled with uneasy laughter. In the 70's, Robert Downey Sr. was known for his strange and bizarre humor. At times certain jokes make absolutely no sense. That's what makes his films so funny. The story concerns a Christ like man in a zoot suit, named Jesse. He's on his way to Jerusalem to be a singer. On the way viewers are introduced to many strange characters; a guy in a ghost suit, a man dressed as a nun, and a women who repeatedly gets shot. Jesse wants to sing at the Greaser's Palace lounge. The evil Seaweedhead Greaser and his daughter preside over the palace. They are very picky on who can preform there. Sr. Greasers son is accused of being gay and is killed by his father. Thank goodness for Jesse's miraculous powers as he's able to revive Sr. Greaser's son from the dead time and time again. In some aspects the film appears to be a parody of El Topo. It also has a Montey Python style of humor and wit. Who can forget the films outrageous musical numbers too? So if your looking for a strange, nonsensical, religious, western comedy; Greaser's Palace is a film you'll most likely enjoy!

Surreal, absurd, unique
10/10
Greaser's Palace is a comical, chaotic, absurdist and surreal religious parody. It's like El Topo meets The Life of Brian. Alan Arrbus plays a strange messiah-like zoot-suited actor/singer/dancer called Jessy, who one day parachutes into a field close to a Western town where a host of odd characters hang out, the main one being a constipated chap called Seaweedhead Greaser, who runs the titular saloon. Jessy has some miraculous traits - he can walk on water and heals some of the locals by telling them: "If you feel, you heal". One of the most memorable scenes (and my favourite) is when Jessy approaches a group of people praying and says to them: "I bring you a message. Exactly six miles north of Skagg Mountain in the Valley of Pain, there lives an evil devil-monster. His name is Bingo Gas Station Motel Cheeseburger With A Side Of Aircraft Noise And You'll Be Gary Indiana. And he loves to hurt people. The last time I saw Bingo Gas Station Motel Cheeseburger With A Side Of Aircraft Noise And You'll Be Gary Indiana, he told me what he wants to do. He wants to come down here and kill each and every one of you. But I said to him: 'Bingo, wait a minute!'. And the reason I said that is because I believe in you people. I believe you can do the job. I believe you can help each other. I believe you can make this world a better place to live in. That's it".
