Bacchanale | Chicago Reader


This bizarre mix of experimental art film and hard-core porn was made in 1970 by “adult” filmmakers John and Lem Amero and is here screened with a new, mostly abstract soundtrack by about 50 different artists. A woman's spirit leaves her body and goes on a nightmarish journey around New York. Although the film features striking imagery and interesting juxtapositions, unlike the avant-garde “trance films” that apparently served as its model it lacks a coherent subjective consciousness and seems to be just a bunch of strange moments. It's hard to believe the filmmakers were personally invested in this pastiche. 70 min.
