Excellent piece of exploitation
27 February 2001 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

Derek Jarman used some of his 70s home movie footage to produce this wonderful piece of exploitational avantgarde cinema. Actually the original material has been slowed down to a speed of 3-6 frames, then Jarman added colour effects and the pulsating, menacing score by Industrial supergroup Throbbing Gristle ("Hot on the Heels of Love").

The result is a piece of art not to dissimilar to Jarman´s painting work in using found footage as elements of memory and mind that resemble ideas reflected in the Cabala and in C.G. Jung`s writings about an archetypical past that is hidden in everyone of us.
