Ratings & Reviews

  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Flaming Creatures

    A film more of interest as a punctuation in time than a satisfying whole in its own right, operating foremost as something of an agent provocateur, albeit on it's own territory. The curation of found music and occasionally arresting imagery fitfully takes fire, otherwise it's tediously fetishistic.

  8. Juhana Inkeriläinen's rating of the film Flaming Creatures

    When I see that titty shaking side by side by hand and an earthquake, hear pop music grooving with screams and celestial yodel, oh brother, it's big time.

  10. Smooth_J's rating of the film Flaming Creatures

    A truly powerful film is one on which one cannot accurately assess one's feelings due to the intense influx of emotions experienced throughout viewing it. Flaming Creatures is pure, gleeful kitsch, divisive and incendiary almost 50 years later.

  11. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Flaming Creatures

    Jack Smith's vision of heaven as a haunted sound stage, where ladies of both sexes can luxuriate in the putting on of their lipstick, a friendly assault brings on an earthquake and the elegant dead dance eternity away. All of his keen understanding of photographic illusion was poured into this vessel. The portraits of his friends are especially telling of how he went about worshiping them.

  12. Jordan H's rating of the film Flaming Creatures

    Itself, a whirlwind orgy; a flurry of absurd, bizarre, and terrifying images.
