William S. Burroughs,
The first time I saw this experimental short, it was on a video cassette along with some of Burrough's other shorts called 'Thee Films', produced by Genesis P-Orridge (Psychic TV,Throbbing Gristle,etc.). I watched it late at night,after an evening with friends. As I drifted in and out of sleep, I thought "Wow, am I watching this,or dreaming it?". I kind of figured I should probably switch it off & get some sleep & watch it tomorrow". The next day, I watched it again & thought..."yowza!" Even fully awake, this short (along with the other shorts on this video cassette)is as trippy as the night before. It seems to be a series of images, with little or no connection what so ever (sort of like a dream itself). My favourite seqment is when one of the characters looks up into the sky, and the film goes from black and white to colour (and back again). It's obvious that this film isn't going to be for everybody, but anybody who has a background in Avant Garde/Experimental cinema should enjoy this trippy short (good luck getting your hands on it,as most of the T.O.P.Y. videos are near impossible to get ahold of)
