multikulti.com:
Nowa edycja z 2014 roku legendarnego obrazu "Dwieście Moteli" z muzyką Franka Zappy. Mothers of Invention wraz z Royal Symphony Orchestra w porywającym nagraniu.

Zremasterowana wersja filmu z 1971r. nakręconego w siedem dni, a zmontowanego w ciągu kolejnych siedmiu. Gorączkowa atmosfera na planie sprzyjała klimatowi filmu, którego głównym tematem jest życie w trasie muzyka rockowego pod koniec XXw. Jednak twórcy pragnęli też przemycić nieco komentarzy na temat surrealistycznego stanu życia politycznego i kulturalnego w Ameryce i na całym świecie.

Film jest w zasadzie pozbawiony fabuły i składa się z serii luźno powiązanych obrazów, a sam Zappa twierdził, że sfilmowano zaledwie jedną trzecią jego scenariusza.

Do powstania filmu przyczynili się muzycy Mothers of Invention i Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, aktor Theodore Bikel, Ringo Starr w roli krasnoluda Larry'ego i Franka Zappy oraz Keith Moon w roli zakonnicy. Sam Zappa pojawia się w filmie wyłącznie jako muzyk.

Editor's info:
Frank Zappa's "200 Motels" is a cult classic. The story, scattered with performances by Mothers of Invention and the Royal Symphony Orchestra, is a plotless tale of life on the road for touring musicians. Originally shot on video and restored here, "200 Motels" is a surrealistic nonstop visual extravaganza starring Frank Zappa and the Mothers, Ringo Starr and Who drummer Keith Moon. Reissued for 2014!

Less a movie than a purposely crude series of musical vignettes and inside jokes for die-hard fans, Frank Zappa informs viewers in the opening scene that "Touring can make you crazy, ladies and gentlemen, and that is what 200 MOTELS is all about." The rest of the plot-less production is filled with more self-reflexive reminders, as the close-up eye and tape recorder signal that Zappa is watching everything his bandmembers are doing. Reasonably, the Mothers of Invention make up the cast, notably Jimmy Carl Black, who repeatedly remarks how he just wants to quit the band and go play real music, have a beer, and get laid. The character of Jeff, played by Martin Lickert, was written for bassist Jeff Simmons, who actually did quit the band just prior to shooting. Other cast members include real-life groupies appearing in some bizarre nudity sequences, along with the Who's drummer Keith Moon as the Hot Nun who overdoses on drugs. Ringo Starr appears as Larry the Dwarf and lends some humorous narration, but that does not clarify any of the proceedings. The action supposedly takes place in Centerville, which is really a kind of poorly dressed set guarded by soldiers. The scenes are randomly assembled and interspersed with performances, including the songs "Lonesome Cowboy Burt," "Magic Fingers," and "Strictly Genteel." This is the only Janet Ferguson video. Stars also making their debut in this video: Lucy Offerall.
