Day #21,844

Walk km 8791-8797 (13,047 to go): test walk for Meetups (downtown)

Toonie Town Store
approx km 8794 Denman Street

Movie #1847: Mr. Freedom (William Klein, 1969)

And you thought Godard's political films were a little odd. Here we have the battle for the hearts and minds of the French done cartoon style. In charge of the battle are Mr. Freedom (USA), Moujik Man (Russia) and Red China Man (not Taiwan Man). It's obvious that Mr Klein hates all three but he has a special place in his spleen for the U.S.A. (Mr Freedom gets top billing and most of the screen time). Fun.
