Special Effects: cocaine
Here's a link to a fifteen-page essay on John Boorman's, um, rather unusual film. Imagine a science-fiction film where the entire special effects budget was spent on cocaine. Not just for the director and script-writer, but also enough cocaine to make the producer and studio heads COMPLETELY UNAWARE of the film's content. That's the only way this film could possibly have been made. (reviews contain major spoilers)"
