Magnificent imagery, too bad Jagger's score starts getting on my nerves within the first two minutes. It's up for contention, but I think the film would've been better with a slighty less irritating soundtrack.
To review. "But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire". I think this is about the obscure and bizarre side of human soul, the most obscure side. It shows a vision of human be that is not anyone would have courage to show.
I don't study film, I'm just a curious kid. One day I came across Kenneth Anger's works by accident and watched his following films: "Fireworks", "Scorpio Rising", "Lucifer Rising" and this one, which I find BY FAR his worst. I think it looks unjustifiably slovenly (real crappy) and - I wouldn't say pretentious... -moronically audacious, let's put it this way. I'm sorry, can someone please explain the genius in this?
2-3. Meh; pretty, but comparatively insubstantial. It's a flashy montage of violent and homoerotic images, satanic symbols, and fragmented human compositions framed around exactly what it says on the tin. Not a whole lot to get out of it in particular.
