Incredibly underrated and criminally forgotten about! It’s a western spoof, a surreal film, a dig at our culture, a search of God and a film about self-discovery all in one. It also inspired Peter Gabriel to make the Genesis concept album "The Lamb Lies Down On The Broadway" which is one of the best pieces of music ever written and composed!
