The truth of the matter is, this is an ejoyable film. Sure, you can watch it at age 29 stone cold sober and it still won’t make any sense (despite desperate theft from “Star Wars”), but it is giddy fun and the rotoscoped black & white is a completely sui generis look. There are some obvious gaps and I’m 99% certain it’s due to cut scenes, but it is fun to notice that Jeff Bridges’ Flynn is not that far away from The Dude. Furthermore I saw this at age 7 or 8 and never had my mind so blown away before.
