The best movie no one's ever seen
23 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw it on TV, on a great cable independent movie show. I also saw it twice. The first time I tuned in a bit late and missed the opening. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out whose film it was. Some of it looked completely like classic - period Antonioni, some like Mexican Bunuel. There are some great scenes: the "Founders Day" festival for example. It's all really murky and ambiguous. Although blond people are lit dizzyingly high key. There's lots of creepy sexual weirdness. All that good stuff... I'd love to see more of Torre Nilsson's films. Maybe he doesn't have his own voice; maybe he's another hidden treasure, like Imamura. Who knows?
