Moment to Moment (1975) [Longer VHS Version] AKA Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight


An experimental, ludicrous, plotless, absurd, surreal comedy. It is seemingly intentionally impossible to understand. It leaps from scene to scene, world to world, with recurring names and actors being the only things that hold it together. Very much like sketch comedy, except without much of a point. The movie literally goes from “Moment To Moment”, with no actual narrative in mind rather than to just film a bunch of miscellaneous scenes and ideas and cut them together. Make of it what you will. 

Director: Robert Downey Sr. (as Robert Downey) AKA AKA Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight
Stars: Leonard Buschel, Elsie Downey, Michael Sullivan.


Note: This film was released by Criterion on 2012 in the Eclipse Series 33 Boxset “Up All Night with Robert Downey Sr.”,  but the version in that set is only 56 minutes long while this one sourced from a VHS is 20minutes longer, quite a difference so thought it would be probably worth uploading.
