Review: Okay, so having watched this film, it is abundantly obvious that drugs were way better in the 70’s: much more potent, and much less stigma. The result is some fantastic entertainment that would have no business being produced in this day and age.
Just as cinema in general was more unbridled and far more director-centric in the 70’s, the porn industry had it’s moments too. This film Visions of Clair definitely belongs in the cannon of bizzarro classics.
I read a review of it on imdb, but it really lacked the essence of the film. To me it felt like a psychological horror movie. The rhythmic editing produces a visual dirge if you will, in conjunction with the ambiant score that conjures up sinister stirring in the soul. Perhaps this is too heady a description for the film, but it really is no less than that. The orgy flashbacks, or fantasy sequences have bizarre, downbeat narration over top, with the droning clamour of the minimalist score.
I reminded me, in a very fleeting way, of a porn version of Bergman’s ‘Persona’.
Anyway, this site would be remiss if this film weren’t on it: it really kicks the shit out of any other porn I’ve seen. The sex scenes even seem like their making love, not fucking. Just a weird, trippy film.
