“This isn't Texas, and it isn't ‘The Twilight Zone’. You've just crossed over into the territory known as the Theater of the Absurd.” -- DVDTalk
GREASER’S PALACE finds legendary underground filmmaker Robert Downey, Sr. (PUTNEY SWOPE) at his most trippy, pastoral, and introspective -- all qualities that blend with his anarchic style to produce a most lionhearted work.
Armed with his trademark platoon of offbeat character actors and willing amateurs mixed together in a lunatic stew, Downey weaves a New Testament allegory across the stitches of an absurdist Western parody. Expect no Mel Brooks-style romp; here, we glide along on GREASER’s unique cadence complete with graceful extended takes, fuzzy arcs and the fearless subversion of audience norms.
