Just remember, one person's "a little loose and wacky" is another
person's "barf bag" fare. ;-)

"Pull My Daisy" is NOT a recent work of Frank's; rather, it's Beat
stuff, spontaneously narrated by Jack Kerouac, shot on film in B&W, and
seeing.  With respect, the remarks about "bring your Barf Bag" are
inaccurate with regard to "Pull My Daisy" and do the film a disservice.

Frank, especially the later work, is difficult and may not be worth the 
struggle for some, but this film is accessible, though perhaps a little
and wacky.  I saw it as part of a Frank film festival in Portland, OR
over 20 
years ago, so my comments are based in old (but I believe pretty
memories.  Respectfully submitted, Dan Kapsner (usually a lurker)
