Lana Turner Overdrive
LANA TURNER OVERDRIVE from Helsinki Productions on Vimeo.
Screen legend Lana Turner takes a hallucinogen-fueled journey deep into her own inland empire in this mix-up from director Michael Frost. Life becomes stage becomes cinema as Lana spins out of control over loss, regret, spiteful teenage stepdaughters and LSD substituted for mom's Valium.
For my loving if reserved praise for the rather slippery source material, 1969's THE BIG CUBE, click here. For my review of FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (1971), here.
