(5-Okay Film)

Formless. Baffling. Experimental.

A short and relatively conventional piece from Avante-garde filmmaker, Kenneth Anger, whose devotion to all that is aberrant and taboo made him a leading figure in the underground experimental film movement. Although made in the 1940s, this short was re-released in the sixties with a rock soundtrack, and this is the version I saw. The short is highly fetishistic, but never very provocative, as it focuses on one woman in a puce dress staring into the camera for almost the entirety of its six-minute running time. While not boring, the film is also not very interesting.
