The least of Anger's works, 1 September 2008
Author: preppy-3 from United States

Pointless (and deadly dull) short film by Kenneth Anger. It involves a small woman (called the Water Witch I believe) wandering around this place with tons of gushing water. Then at the end she becomes a fountain. Swear to God--that's it! Anger's early films are an acquired taste. I did like "Fireworks", "Puce Moment" and "Rabbits Moon" but the popularity of this has always escaped me. I've seen it multiple times and (more often than not) found myself struggling to stay awake! Anger's beautiful imagery seems to be missing here. Just a bunch of gushing water and a midget running around in a bizarre outfit is not enough to keep me interested. How this got on the list of film to be preserved is beyond me. "Fireworks" is MUCH better than this--but I guess "Fireworks" is too homo erotic. I personally can't stand this one but many others seem to think it's a masterpiece. Use your own judgment.
