What film?
11 December 2002 | by OskadoSee all my reviews

First, the good news. Seeing DS-4 in absolutely no way obscured any memories of Sexo por Compassion, with - among others - Mariola Fuentes, which I saw a few days ago. That's an extremely fun "expressionist" film, and Charlie Chaplin could have learned a lot had he had the opportunity to understudy Mariola.

Now, just some of the bad news...

Very early on, DS-4 caused me to recall Animal House. The thing looks as though produced by the Alphas! Of course the Deltas wouldn't have touched it with a 40-foot spear. Our medieval personages are clean-shaven and wearing costumes fresh off some drycleaner's rack. I found myself smelling imaginary cologne, their faces were so fresh and clean.

I also found myself comparing this to the Rocky Horror Show - not the appallingly ghastly and imbecilic piece of suburban banality on film, but to what I experienced in a decaying downtown theater in New York back around 1970. Well... DS-4 has no feel for the jaded, or for the erotic, or for the decadent, and certainly not for the "arty". High-school cheerleaders jumping in their broadknit sweaters and skirts and saddleshoes and pom-poms are sexier - and for any readers of this who retort, "Yeah? You haven't see OUR cheerleaders," just let me tell you, "Yeah, well you don't wanna see these turkeys in DS-4!"

Okay, okay. The lead actor has an aging head - with hair teased and blow-dried to compensate for a surplus of scalp - that reminded me of poor Jimmy Stewart in his final years - attached to a huge, greased plastic body with invisible nipples and no hair. In fact, one could wonder if with all the steroids pumping him up, if he can still get anything other than his sword up.

There seem to have been no grips on this set, as the sound is mostly dubbed, but occasionally live, in which latter case it's uneven and scarcely audible. I believe I even could have composed better music. Even silence would have been better than the incoherent junk someone pawed on a synthesizer - though the thought did strike me that it would have been better with Mozart's Requiem for background music - that is, if their editors could have handled another track. The leading woman, a sad case with her teased bleach-blond hair and generally sexless figure, might better have played the scarecrow in an off-off-off Broadway Wizard of Ozz - though on those stages there's often an absence of type-casting. Come on, even flat women can be erotic - but not her. If only they'd all read a little Robert Crumb beforehand, maybe that would have helped, if any of them still has any capacity for hormone flow.

Early on, the thought struck me that if we are at a party, I'd have never asked that leading lady to dance - but soon I suspected she probably couldn't dance anyway - as it is, she can hardly talk convincingly. The film refuses to make fun of itself - indeed, it's so bad, the simple concepts of "fun" and "self" would confound that effort. Besides, the "actors" aren't capable of it - I don't believe they could even play a McDonald's cashier well enough to sell a burger - which is maybe why they allowed themselves to be bullied into permitting their names to be associated with this thing. "The Loved One" with old Jonathon Winters and Robert Morley can make fun of death, but there's no making fun of Deathstalker - no more than of a wet pile of horsehair.

I won't go on. Look. I actually really enjoyed DS-2. It was on that basis that I excitedly shelled out five big ones in a flea market and bought DS-4. But the two bare virtually zero relationship to each other. Believe it or not, I'm a DS-2 liker. Not as much so perhaps as with "Cielo Abierto" or "Sexo por Compassion" with Mariola Fuentes, but it amused me.

DS-4 is static, sterile, impotent. Gosh, even zombie victims staggering off the original set of "Invasion of the Bodysnatchers" could have done better. Whew! Gimme a break!
