Totally plotless, Neon Palace is a Canadian-made montage of 1950s and 1960s pop culture. Director Peter Rowe has assembled a dizzying parade of film clips, commercials, songs and TV news bites to chronicle American fads and foibles. The point of all this is to show how the Great Unwashed Public is easily led (and misled) by hype. So what else is new?
