Futz (1969)

Astral Films (Canada)
Directed by Tom O'Horgan
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4

A man is accused of bestiality (with his pet pig) in rural Canada. The locals revolt. He is put in prison but insists that he really loves his pig. There are breaks for songs and a few psychedelic segments. Basically a filmed play by O'Horgan's "experimental theater" troupe, the hillbilly stereotypes are so exaggerated it becomes almost unwatchable, though there is some serious satire lurking underneath, way underneath.
