The Flower Thief
Time Out says
A collection of puckish, improvised vignettes, this experimental film works best
as an obliquely satirical window on Beat counterculture, embodied by the
loose-limbed Mead wandering through smoky clubs and lofts in his cloak of ironic
whimsy. Some of his friends' rants make it onto the cruddy-sounding audio track
("Peruvian civilization on coca...America on Coca-Cola!"). Other skits bound
into slapstick, without the rigor that the casual viewer might require. For the
historically curious, however, Mead's feature-length riff captures a
freewheeling moment in full.
