The Works of Corey Michael Smithson
Total running time: 125 minutes
"HUMOURESQUE", 50 minutes
In production for over eleven years, "HUMOURESQUE" is a dirty movie of
monstrous proportions. Told in twenty chapters, the labyrinthine plot
references prostitution, aging, drug addiction, incest, medieval surgery,
patent medicine quackery, fortune-telling, time-travel, madness, lust,
transsexualism, aristocratic debauchery, Rococo costume design, sexual
slavery, florid hallucinations, and overwrought penny dreadfuls. A love poem
to D.W. Griffith, in the form of a schizophrenic Victorian stag film. Like
"GONE WITH THE WIND" on food stamps. Alternately alluring and awful ... a
terrible, terrible dream.
"Ghostfight", 4.5 minutes
Various incarnations of myself knife-fight for supremacy on a rugged
"Bridefight", 13 minutes
A bearded bride waits on the seashore for her missing mate, using semaphore
and dance to signal passing ships. The sequel to "Ghostfight".
"Blooms", 15 minutes
Evolving geometries of the male and female body. Like Busby Berkeley on
"Box of Candy", 5 minutes
A psychedelic 3-D exploration of my abstract paintings.
"Palace", 5 minutes
A virtual journey through several ornate line drawings. Based on Baroque
motifs sketched in Amsterdam.
"Stag", 7 minutes
A meditation on death, masturbation, and masculinity.
"Apeshit", 3.5 minutes
A naughty Victorian valentine.
"Showbloat", 22 minutes
An unauthorized smashup of the 1951 musical.
WARNING: "HUMOURESQUE", "STAG", and "APESHIT" contain nudity, graphic
violence, and weird sexuality. These films may not be appropriate for all
