| Way-out comic fantasy...but just a staple of mod Italian cinema in the '60s
Unorthodox sculptor can't distinguish reality from his dreams, which causes trouble for him after he believes he has seen the covering-up of a murder. Those who see "Shoot Loud, Louder...I Don't Understand"--a title which refers to Marcello Mastroianni's mute uncle who communicates with his fireworks (!)--might think the film alone in its surrealistic jumble of fantasy and romantic comedy, but it is merely one in a dozen choppy, bizarre, deliberately disconnected comedies from Italy in the 1960s. This was sold domestically (and, indeed, is still being sold that way via DVD) with Raquel Welch's image, but her lovely figure is the only thing on display, her voice being dubbed (even though she is clearly speaking English). Welch, as a gold-digger who drives a big fancy car, really has no character to play; she drops in intermittently, usually scantily-clad, and adds some sex appeal to the mix, but that's it. Lighting cues, quirky sets, and lots of silly chaos make up the rest of the film, which is running on empty. *1/2 from ****
