5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece but not for everyone, 14 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nude Vampire [Blu-ray] [1970] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
If you are looking for popcorn entertainment forget it! If you need a plot that makes sense to hold your hand then forget it! If you're looking for porn definitely forget it! But if you feel you might enjoy being guided into a labyrinthine dreamscape somewhere between the paintings of Paul Delvaux and Jean Cocteau then you should track this film down. Rollin is one of a handful of film-makers who was able to make films with the logic of dream. Some will be bored and frustrated as the other reviews show and although I would give this film five stars I would also offer caution to those classically minded people who think cinema should follow a particular form or belong to a particular genre or make sense. The Nude Vampire is not a film to be understood. It is, however, a rare and uncompromising vision... Rollin, in most of his best films, works like a poet and if you don't get it then this is okay. He combines elements of classic movie serials with his own obsesseions and dreams. The Nude Vampire might be hard going for someone coming to this kind of cinema for the first time but it might equally be something you find yourself watching many times and becoming more and more enchanted by. In this sense it is very much in the eye of the beholder. But the jarring experimental soundtrack, the beautiful colours, the strange plotting and odd performances all work together to create a film much more than the sum of its parts. Even some of the people who hate this film on first viewing often find themselves returning to it haunted by some of the imagery.
