Jarv’s Schlock Vault: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension

Laugh-a while you can, monkey-boy.

I’m at a total loss where to begin with this one. Seriously, this may be one of the most bugnuts insane films ever made, and one I’ve been meaning to get my grubby little paws on for a long time.
