Wait - What? This isn't 1970? Yea, it looks like an early 70's film but it was released in 1990. A very late short film by Bernard Wilets that does not even appear in his IMDB page - he had made the spectacular film about Electronic Music that I posted last year. Also directed by Dianne Haak... But it is a parable about how being loose with your money slowly ruins your life. You stop enjoying pilfered candy bars. Gum becomes meaningless. You begin to hate magicians. You begin to pull out your teeth for pillow fairies. You rent serpents at high prices. You peddle your own flesh for incomplete decks of playing cards. All this and worse... awaits you. One quarter lost at a time. Shot in mostly natural light it has deep shadows and was hard to transfer to video. But hey - Enjoy.....

    Man, what wouldn't I do with five dollars… I could rent so many snakes! Or one snake for so many hours!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Darrylizer1 says:

    The kid would have had most of his money if he wasn't such a degenerate gambler!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John West says:

    I used to have a 1-eyed bear, too! And now I have 6 or 7 walkie-talkies. So cheer up, little boy. There's still hope.

    that do be exactly like real life though.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NZHippie says:

    Oh how things have changed, glass bottles are rare and we recycle plastic bottles these days…

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars typebarsmack says:

    Renting the snake was the beginning of the end.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Good Citizen says:

    Story of my life.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Horwat says:

    I WAS that kid! Spend! Spend!! Spend!!!

    Yeah, is it just me, or did Alexander go from typical, clueless silly kid to okay, maybe this child has an intellectual disability by the halfway point? Nicky practically says "Give me more of your money, chump! I'll make it disappear," and he's like, "Hmm, seems like a reasonable plan."

    Being THIS obsessed with money as a small child is just WILD

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Combless Man says:

    I can't believe this was made in 1990. Looks like much earlier. Although the kid's financial acuity is pretty familiar.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W.D. Callahan says:

    That really did look like it was out of the '70s. Right up until I saw mom's kitten heels under her jeans.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars liquidsonly says:

    But he has a story to tell and I for one am grateful. Maybe that's the thing of greater value.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anony Ninja says:

    this is amazing wtf

    Kiddo could get up early, walk to school, then offer the bus tokens at half price at stops on the way home.
