A Spy
US 1992

Hester Reeve, dressed as Jesus Christ, lip-synchs to the Doors-song: A Spy In The House of Love. Behind her, B-movie girls in black panties or nothing at all, cavort in scenes of Babylonian excess. Also in the act are rainbow fields and amoeboid forms swimming across the frame. The Jesus figure is an ironic comment on the lyrics of the song “I know your deepest secret fear, I know everything”, and the almost godlike status of super stardom. A startling and outrageous tape.
