Leo the Last (1970)

Where the Heart Is (1990, USA) C-107m. ** D: John Boorman. Starring Dabney Coleman, Uma Thurman, Joanna Cassidy, Crispin Glover, Suzy Amis, Christopher Plummer, David Hewlitt, Robbie Coltrane. Typically eccentric Boorman comedy about real-estate mogul Coleman, who one day kicks his three children out of the house, thereby forcing them to live in one of the derelict buildings he usually has destroyed. Off-beat story works as a mild satire on social classes. Not terribly engaging but worthwhile. Those body paintings (by Timna Woolard) are brilliant, however. Kind of a sequel, or update, to Boorman's social parable LEO THE LAST (1970).
