Trivia

Although previous versions had popular doo-wop songs on the soundtrack, for the seven-minute, 1979 version of this film, Anger decided to use the catchy but hyper-obscure 1976 song "It Came in the Night" by the UK band A Raincoat. The song was released as a single only and is not on the only A Raincoat album "Digalongamacs". It was written by band leader Andy Arthurs and was used in the film without his knowledge or permission. See more »

Poetry, not plot
10 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

One thing I've noticed while shuffling through IMDBland is that there are a number of people for whom Plot is King. If a movie doesn't have an engaging plot, then it is of no use for such people. I'm not saying that's a bad thing necessarily, although it does seem to limit appreciation of a big chunk of what's out there. But that's the criteria that a lot of people apparently use to judge films.

These people should avoid this film (and probably Kenneth Anger's other works, and, well, a whole lot more besides). This film is about images and poetry, and, while there is sort of a plot, it's pretty minor and doesn't really contribute a lot to the proceedings. If you are the type of person who enjoys the visual aspect of film, and don't really care so much about whether there is a traditional story being told, then I think you will love this little confection. I did. It has a gorgeous look, with the monochromatic blues pulling it all together, and the use of the Commedia Della Arte (sp?) characters gave it an exotic yet familiar feel.

Oh yeah, and the bunny is cute!
