I wish I had been drunk when I watched this movie. I wish I had toked something too. However, I'm glad I went to Tortuga to view this because I would have been super pissed off and let down if I had paid real money to see it. I also wish that the movie had been released under its original title in the U.S. because it sounds like a gay porn movie and it makes me giggle.
I did like the character of Jack the Raven Man. It was fun to figure out which poems he his dialogue came from.
I also liked the card trick scene. In this scene Promise Ring boy whips out one of his missionary tools and has corresponded the cards in a standard playing deck to the Bible.
Here's my Wiccan version:
1: 1 stands for how many it takes to worship.
2: 2 stands for Hieros Gamos, the holy union.
3: 3 stands for the Triple Goddess: maiden, mother, and crone.
4: 4 stands for the four directions: north, south, east, and west.
5: 5 stands for the five elements: fire, air, water, earth, and spirit.
6: 6 stands for something, but I don't really remember what.
7: 7 stands for the Charge of the Goddess because you're pretty lucky if you remember all the words.
8: 8 stands for the Eight-fold path.
9: 9 stands for Hecate, the crone at the crossroads.
10: 10 stands for I'm too fucking tired to come up with something clever.
Jack: The Jack is the young Lord, ravaging the countryside.
Queen: The Queen is the Goddess--queen of Heaven and queen of the Underworld.
King: The King is the Dark Lord, harvesting as he goes.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I fell asleep while I watched the movie. So, I watched it again. I fell asleep again. I don't think I missed much.
