This film affected me physically, has done so for everyone I've
showed it to (most haven't got beyond the scene of god eviscerating
himself to give birth) and, when I went to the video store was told
by the clerk, "oh that film is filed under extreme cult."
I really like this as a "beyond language" film, more performance art
(theater of cruelty for sure) than narrative feature.
