Boiled Lobster of Lucky Landlady Lagoon

Jack Smith 
Lower East Side 1969

This is the one that Ira Cohen referred to as Reefers of Technicolor Island.  You see the marijuana plants treated as miniature palm trees, precisely as described.  I take it all as his remake of Edgar Ulmer’s Isle of Forgotten Sins with Mario Montez’s white clad nun filling in for Gale Sondergaard’s brothel keeper and Ira’s crazed sea captain in the John Carradine role.
