A Movie
US 1958

A montage of found materials from fact (newreels) to fiction (old movies). Cliches and horrors make a rapid collage in which destruction and sex follow each other in images of pursuit and falling until finally a diver disappears through a hole in the bottom of the sea - the ultimate exit. The entire thing is prefaced by a girl from a shady movie lazily undressing. By the time A Movie is over she has retrospectively become a Circe or Prime Mover.
