REVENGE OF THE STOLEN STARS (1985 U.S.) D/W/P: ULLI LOMMEL W: BEN A. HEIN P: ROGER DEUTSCH
A young man in San Francisco ("everyone's favourite city") travels to a South East Asian jungle island after he inherits his dead uncle's plantation and ruby mine. The uncle (Klaus Kinski) appears as a ghost. The story revolves around a cursed ruby. Suzanne Love (associate producer) dresses as a male cowboy and is turned into a rabbit by a mystic in her last Lommel film before she divorced him (she did return in his A SMILE IN THE DARK though). Like other quickies from the former Fassbinder protege, this pathetic obscurity is obviously tongue-in-cheek (note narration by a cackling fat man), but that doesn't make it ok. The director also acts. It was filmed in the Philippines, Thailand, Mexico and America.
