“Powerful and unsettling…elevates voyeurism to its central element”
—Amos Vogel

A psychiatrist documents his most difficult case of mental breakdown—his own. Rip Torn stars in Milton Moses Ginsberg’s darkly intense and erotic classic. Screening with Carolee Schneemann’s short film FUSES (22 min), “a continuum of non-sequential, polymorphous and strongly ‘pornographic’ imagery.” Newly restored.
