Mr. Freedom

Directed by William Klein
With John Abbey, Delphine Seyrig, Donald Pleasence
1969, 95min, 35mm

 

“An angry expatriate’s colossal middle finger to the country he once called home... makes Team America: World Police look subtle and Lars Von Trier’s Dogville look like an affectionate tribute to the Yankee spirit.”
The A.V. Club 

“Conceivably the most anti-American movie ever made” (Jonathan Rosenbaum), William Klein’s delirious spoof of US foreign policy plays like a live-action comic strip in which a dunderheaded, red, white, and blue-clad imperialist superhero destroys everything in his path as he battles left-wing radicals and Communist baddies. Bursting with zany, Pop Art-inspired visuals, ultra-Mod costume design, and a cameo by Serge Gainsbourg (!), Mr. Freedom is at once ridiculously over-the-top and unflinchingly critical.

 
Thank You Mask Man

Directed by Jeff Hale
1968, 8min, 35mm

 

A typically gonzo Lenny Bruce routine satirizing The Lone Ranger was turned into this foul-mouthed animated short, which tackles racism, imperialism, and homophobia.
