pettibon and co-director dave markey ("love dolls superstar," "1991: the year that punk broke," "reality 86'd") present the sla/patty hearst drama of the early seventies as the final detonation of sixties counterculture premise. a free, sexy right on tania is forged of the uptight, poor little rich girl patty over the white hot flame of four hundred amerikkkan years of bottled up race/sex/black/white fury in the person of field marshal cinque. make sure your vcr has a frame-by-frame advance button! you won't want to miss a single inch of this up from the plantation drama!

""this exhausting maelstrom of sex and violence is redeemed by the fair representation of the good intentions of all my friends of those great days!" - bill walton
