'He's got the boogie on his fingers & the hubba-hubba in his soul!'
Greaser's Palace is a comical, chaotic, absurdist and surreal religious parody. It's like El Topo meets The Life of Brian. Alan Arbus plays a strange messiah-like zoot-suited actor/singer/dancer called Jessy, who one day parachutes into a field close to a Western town where a host of odd characters hang out, the main one being a constipated chap called Seaweedhead Greaser, who runs the titular saloon. Jessy has some miraculous traits - he can walk on water and heals some of the locals by telling them: "If you feel, you heal". It's hard not to like a film with a character called Bingo Gas Station Motel Cheeseburger With A Side Of Aircraft Noise And You'll Be Gary Indiana.
"An incorrigibly irreverent vision of the universe. A mixture of audacity, rebellion, wild imagination and runaway chaos. Writer-director Robert Downey is blessed with a gift for the outrageous that no other filmmaker touches." - Newsweek
"If there was a contest for the most brilliant surreal films of all time, this would go into the
top 5 most surely." - Damon Packard, director of Reflections of Evil
