25 April 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was in this movie, as well. I played a number of different roles over a period of several months. Tibor Takacs was definitely the director. Joe Sutherland was the D.O.P. and one of the producers.

I really enjoyed the shoot but I wasn't too happy with the finished product. I think Tibor cut out most of the dialogue so that the film was almost silent. It ended up being just a lot of avant-garde images.

I remember we shot in a coal pit, in a cafe, in a train, in a junk yard, in a disco etc. The guy who played the Metal Messiah was on a big ego trip but the rest of the cast were great.

Shooting the film was a wonderful experience. It was previewed at a rep cinema in the West end of Toronto on Bloor Street West, in 1977 or 1978.

I also want to mention that Stephen Zoller was nominated for a Canadian Film Award, for this film, for Best Adapted Screenplay. (This production started out as a stage play.)
