While laying around my place contemplating action, I noticed a 60's movie playing on my t.v.- without sound. When I finally put the volume up, it was this scene :
a rad 60's style girl is getting dosed with LSD - begins to seizure/ acid trip dance across the room while a bunch of men stare on. This dance sequence will go down in my history book as the BEST freakout EVER! I mean- she is wide eyed and wild and interepretative dancing to the max. Not since "And God Created Woman" with Bardot or Ally sheedy in Breakfast club has a dance convulsion looked so appealing. Her outfit is electric and the tension is thick. She later falls victim to a horrible gang rape. Which is not very good. Bad things happen when you hang with the wrong crowd. There are some eerie tripped out scenes where a random hippie girl just laughs and laughs while everything goes bad around her.
There's loads of great background details and drugged-out strangeness throughout this film. It sort of has a pulp bummer 50's morality schtick. The scene takes place on the infamous Sunset Strip. The Chocolate Watchband plays in concert in the film. "As for the title "Riot", it only lasts about four minutes - so it's a bit on the weak side.
The Chocolate Watchband (seriously one of the best names ever) play in this scene from the movie
it' s been playing on Showtime lately
