As I was drifting to sleep, I swear the folksy, travelogue narrator mentioned something about finding a better movie to watch.

The story of this film is more fascinating than the actual movie, particularly the director's life. This was the 10th highest grossing movie of 1972. It is enjoyable on its own...though I recommend watching while folding laundry or some other mundane activity. The pacing is fairly glacial, though that's not that odd for an early 70s film, it's very slow by today's standards.

I loved this'n when it was in the theaters. Maybe you kinda had to be there. I can think of few reasons to recommend it now, though I am glad so many people on Shudder seem to enjoy it. I will say, this is not a particularly nice looking print. I wonder if any good original elements still exist?

Unwatchable. No idea how/why this is a cult classic. It’s like a boring educational film from the Prelinger Archive, but with a guy in an ape suit.
