under the rainbow -poster

Lifted from Judy Garland’s ugly anecdote, Rainbow lampoons the time 124 future-Munchkins crashed the Culver Hotel while shooting Wizard of Oz. Tiny hookers; dead dogs; a sheep fucker; Asians incapable of pronouncing L’s. -no one escapes offense, audience included.
ESPECIALLY upsetting is seeing sweet Fisher molested by a snarling, scarred, midget Nazi’s sword. Suddenly Slave Leia feels as flat-out feminist as Rosie the Riveter. Only Chase’s dignity survives by (somehow) having nothing to do.

Seriously? I’m just going to stand around for this ENTIRE picture?

I admire its balls. But its cop-out, ‘just a dream’ ending is one big ‘Fuck You’ after a cavalcade of crap. (98)
