Trivia

The love-making scene features Richard Neville and his then girlfriend Louise Ferrier. After filming it was discovered that the sound had failed, and so the crew asked the couple to redo the scene, sound only. Rather than making love, they sat on the bed, and read William Blake poems to each other. See more »

Interesting
2 July 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

After years of listening to the odd soundtrack, I finally tracked the film down. It's a combination documentary/art film that is surprisingly interesting. The odd film score (composed by Roger Waters and Ron Geesin) makes much more sense, as it's set to the action of the film. Worth seeing if you like odd films, and you're able to track down a decent copy.
