The many flawed details of the film are embarrassing, but the film entire suggests a cry from the heart of a crippled poet.
It quickly descends into [Wood's] signature style: few -- if any -- of the shots match, the acting is atrocious and the dialogue sings with its own unique rhythms of awfulness.

Bad, bad, bad. Have you not yet been introduced to Ed Wood?
