End of the Road (Aram Avakian, 1970)

This movie is starred by two of my favorite actors: Stacy Keach and Harris Yulin, besides The Voice, James Earl Jones.
It is an adaptation of John Barth's  bizarre novel detailing the story of a man (Keach) who goes into a catatonic state at a train station. He is sent to a strange mental hospital run by a weird man named Dr D (Jones). After he is considered to be 'cured' he takes a job as a college Professor and proceeds to have an affair with the wife of one of his colleagues.
 The film-making style is refreshingly audacious in a way that is rarely seen anymore. Everything is just thrown out there no matter how outrageous with little or no regard to mainstream acceptance. The kinetic imagery and music has a certain hypnotic effect that keeps you connected to it even if you don't understand what is going on.

Director   Aram Avakian

Stars:  Stacy Keach, Harris Yulin, James Earl Jones, James Coco, Dorothy Trista.

Stacy Keach and Harris Yulin teamed up again in the revisionist 1971 Western O Massacre dos Pistoleiros (1971), with Keach as Doc Holliday and Yulin as Wyatt Earp. I tried tp post this western, but unfortunately was blocked by total copyright.
