Gold: Before Woodstock Beyond Reality DVD (NTSC Region 1)
A Turned-on Tale of the New American Dream featuring a soundtrack with unreleased music from the MC5.
In 1968, filmmaker Bob Levis led a rag-tag band of dreamers, drop outs and drug-happy darlings into the wilderness to make a movie and emerged months later with GOLD, a bizarre and beautiful journey into the mind and madness of the late 1960s – one overflowing with fantasies of revolution, recreation and raunchy free love. At once a western, a comedy, a nudie, a drama and a musical – GOLD is a profound potpourri made in the spirit of shaking down square society, while systematically shattering every movie rule in the process. Starring the father of improvisational comedy Del Close (The Untouchables, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), Garry Goodrow (Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, The Hollywood Knights), and fueled by the hard kickin’ sounds of the MC5 and more, GOLD is a tawdry and twisted testament to a time when the world was ready for change, and the counter-culture set out to turn it upside-down. Considered a ‘lost’ film for 40 years, GOLD has been found again
