5.0 out of 5 stars mystic surrealism, 29 Oct 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Subconscious Cruelty (Collector´s 2 Disc Edition) (2000) (Region 2) (Import) (DVD)
I loved this film a lot. I also love Jodorowsky, Tetsuo, Begotten and that kind of stuff, so if you love that too, give this a chance. It's a film full of excesses, but that is not the reason I love it. What I like most is that this film contains a lot of sequences of short rational unrelated images, that evoke strong emotions.
It's like poetry, where words are used in new ways. This is cinamatic poetry, where images are used in a new way.
It contains four little stories, and then I use the word story in a very loose way. It's more like cinematographic dreams. It combines sex, extreme violence and religion, that highpoints in a finale that, however I don't believe in Christ, gave me the feeling that I was after watching this not longer welcome in heaven.
My favourite part is the third, where naked people kind of make love with the earth and nature, and making it bleed. Why? That doesn't interest me. This film is not for understanding, but to make contact with the hidden world behind your ratio. This film is very strong in that, and that's why I love it. I don't like films you have to understand. I like it when a film destroys my logic. I like films you have to feel. I see this as giving freedom to the soul, while your body has not to die in the proces.
Every part builds to an image that makes your subconsiousness jump. Don't look the trailler, because it gives away these images. My first looking of this film was half spoilt by the product description amazon gave, where they give away the final images of the first two stories. This film works best as you know so little as possible about it. On the other hand: This film has to be found by a group of people with a, let's say, different taste. How can we reach them without spoiling the experience? I got interested when I found the product decription by amazon.
Only look this film as you're sure it's for you. It is the kind of film that realy can hurt people. I'm one of those rare creatures who loves it to be hurt by a film.
