Strange piece features real-life insurance salesman King taking real-life filmmaker Nowak along on a weekend to Las Vegas. The film is billed as a "fictional documentary," but it's impossible to figure out what's real and what's not. King is a foul-mouthed, obnoxious lout, but also a

terrific salesman. He's fascinating in his repulsiveness. In one sequence King takes a shower with a buxom young lady, though he has argued with Nowak against doing the scene. King also describes an orgy he attended, then claims to have made up the whole thing. The film ends with a dream sequence

involving a big-busted woman on a beach. The technical quality of the film is poor, with switches back and forth from color to black-and-white film stock. The dream sequence was shot in Super 8, the rest of the film was done in 16mm, and the whole thing was blown up to 35mm. Bizarre stuff, but

Brechtians might want to take a look.
