Last night I saw the worst movie I have ever, ever seen in my entire life. Figaro rented Glen or Glenda awhile ago, and that was pretty fucking bad, but this one was just vastly worse, and officially the worst thing ever. It also has the distinction of being the worst Western - worst film and worst Western. Wow. It is unmitigated shit from start to finish, and at only 93 minutes long feels like a fucking eternity.
The Hired Hand. 1971. Peter Fonda's directorial debut. All you need to know: Fucking stoned, drunk, boring, hippy crap version of something like the Wild West. Wow. I cannot believe how bad it was. Wow. It's from a list of 50 forgotten classics published by the Observer, so as far as I'm concerned it's just further proof first world pinkos aren't good at reccomending anything. Calling it a "beautful, acid-trip western" is an insult to beauty, acid, and westerns. It's the story of a fucking skinny git who sighs alot through retarded, contrived situations and lousy production values. The end.
Sometimes I'm tempted to think real classics just aren't forgotten.
