I just saw the “Illustrated Man” film with Rod Steiger from 1969. It freaked me out.
Ignoring the other stories, what is the deal with the body art? I don’t get it at all – why and how did the lady go back in to the future?
It just strikes me as weird without any meaning behind it.
Is this a case of a bad movie adaptation? Or was it just supposed to be freaky?
Another thing is that the bodyart isn’t as freaky now as it must have been in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Lots of tatoos around.
