35mm. A literally black film, carved by John Alton's cinematography, an unusual tale of secrecy, psychoanalysis, and mystical symbology, in the continuity of some Hitchcock's and Lang's and the mystery that invaded North-American 40's production. Is a perspicacious film, which director might be worth searching for - here rules an immensity of sculpted details, ambiences and points of view.
Tendencies of Spiritualist Alexis become an allegory for cinema, where belief is conjured through magical tactics, but becomes dangerous when manipulated for money. Fantastic Alton photography when matched with Vorhaus' sensitive direction crafts a need to believe that it's not just the comprehension of the logical, but belief of the possible (even through emotional tricks in moderation) that heals a searching soul.
