    From back in the day when cops were cool. But a good movie, starts with a blasting jazz score over the opening credits, then just gets cooler and weirder. The community at the apartment complex (cool mid-century L.A. version) is the supporting cast and what a wild and wooly late 60’s assemblage they are, especially the weird and wonderful “body beautiful” George Grizzard. Throughout, the buttermilk swilling screw Janssen remains steadfast in his innocence. You know how this ends. Steve Allen, by the way, has a very amusing cameo as a Fox News-esque cynical pundit who admits he is going after viewers, not the truth. Kulik’s masterpiece and must-see. Thanks, Jon!
