PERFUMED NIGHTMARE (1977)

"PERFUMED NIGHTMARE, the highly original first feature by Filipino director Kidlat Tahimik, is a kind of comic Third World psychodrama. The filmmaker plays himself as a rustic naif, the ideal subject of neocolonialism...More underground than most Third World films, it's far more Third World than most underground ones. As a blueprint for an 'undeveloped' cinema, I haven't seen anything comparable since Ousmane Sembene's BLACK GIRL or the early films of the Brazilian cinema novo."

"One of the most original and poetic works of cinema made anywhere in the seventies." - Werner Herzog
