DRACULA, THE DIRTY OLD MAN

DRACULA, THE DIRTY OLD MAN is something that may happen in the middle of nowhere on a daily basis, but feels grossly foreign to anyone outside of that happening. It’s the film that every horny, monster-obsessed, 13-year-old-boy-with-the-inexplicable-prowess-of-a-used-car-salesman is dying to make after he sees Woody Allen's WHAT'S UP TIGER LILY?. Terribly crafted. Probably improvised. Constantly dumbfounding. By the accepted laws of inside jokes, experiencing this movie should be as rewarding as trudging through Chantal Ankerman’s JE TU IL ELLE. That is to say, not very rewarding at all. Yet, there’s a magic at work here, an age-old hex of People-Who-Seriously-Don’t-Care combined with the gift of debatable comedy. DRACULA, THE DIRTY OLD MAN is a reckless, sleazy, and altogether mystifying inside joke that works — whether you’re in on it or not. Furthermore, Dracula has sex through his dress slacks. Twice. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
