The Ski Bum (1971)

It’s The Graduate on the slopes, only with psychedelic fringes, hippies, dope deals, bizarre fantasy sequences and enough reverb-echo for a Joe Meek tribute. Before he was an auteur du sexy with Wild Orchid and Red Shoe Diaries, Zalman King starred in a number of Seventies underground dramas such as tonight’s film, in which he’s an angry young man in a wintery Colorado resort town, trying his best to avoid the ski-bummer that lies dead ahead if he complies with the sinister wishes of the burg’s local plutocrat. Co-starring Charlotte Rampling, this highly unusual tale is awash in expansive, snow-capped ‘scope cinematography and a whirlwind of spacey vibes. (Cinespia / Cinefamily)
