Critics reviews

A rapturous and criminally insane hymn to the Seventh Art and its irrepressible power to inspire, deviate, corrupt, and elate. This is cinema as the crazed totem of modern civilization in whose name any sacrifice is conceivable, for its industrial ab-originality absorbs and reflects the endless range of human (im)possibilities.
