Don Larsson would like to draw people's attention to J. Hoberman's article, "Bad Movies" (Film Comment, July-August 1980, 7-12). Hoberman mentions-one film-Bride of the Monster--with Pynchonian overtones: Bela Lugosi-Struggles with a rubber octopus; the film ends with an atomic mushroom cloud. Hoberman's comments on the relation of bad movies to surrealism are provocative in terms of Pynchon's use of mass culture.
