Item Description
JAMES NARES' 1978 EXPERIMENTAL SMALL FORMAT EPIC HAS BEEN WIDELY
PRAISED BY NUMEROUS CRITICS, AND STARS SUCH PUNK & NO-WAVE
LEGENDS AS LYDIA LUNCH, JAMES CHANCE, PAT PLACE, JOHN LURIE, PATTI
ASTOR, LANCE LOUD, DAVID McDERMOTT, & ERIC MITCHELL. THE FILM,
LOOSELY BASED ON SHAKESPEARE'S JULIUS CAESAR AND DEEPLY INFLUENCED
BY THE UNDERGROUND FILM MOVEMENT OF THE '60s, STARS McDERMOTT AS
THE RANTING CAESAR, AN ANNNOYING SELF-CENTERED RULER ON THE BRINK
OF INSANITY. MITCHELL'S AMBITIOUS METELLUS HAS HAD ENOUGH OF THE
EMPEROR'S CHILDISH FITS AND SEEKS TO REMOVE HIM FROM POWER. THE
EDITING, WHICH INCLUDES BRIEF SHOTS OF WHAT APPEAR TO BE MISTAKES
AS WELL AS STAGED ANTICS, ADDS A STRANGE SELF-REFLEXTIVE APPEAL AS
IF YOU'RE BEING LET IN ON SOME INSIDE JOKE.
SHIPS IN A PLAIN SLEEVE WITH NO ARTWORK.
