Home Movies

Not many people bothered to see Home Movies, an oddball comedic experiment with Sarah Lawrence film students by Brian De Palma (sandwiched between The Fury and Dressed to Kill). Starring Keith Gordon, Kirk Douglas, and a scene-stealing Gerrit Graham (as a deranged scout leader who only eats organic), it's actually quite funny if you're in the right frame of mind. (And where else can you see Nancy Allen as a reformed sex performer who worked with a fuzzy, possessed rabbit puppet?) Pino Donaggio contributes one of his wildest and most melodic scores here, mashing in everything imaginable: rock, classical, disco funk, romantic instrumentals and much, much more. For some reason one of the strongest musical moments, a pop version of Kristina's theme played over the epilogue, was left off the soundtrack album; it's included here as a bonus pulled from the film version.

Where do you find these? I can't even believe this soundtrack was ever released as the film is quite the obscurity.
