The Other Side of the Underneath

Directed by Jane Arden

It's women having nervous breakdowns for almost two hours. There are some engaging visuals with a lot of filler. It's worth watching if you are into experimental films by people like Maya Deren.

Wow this was intense and long but a real treat if you open up your mind to the true message its trying to convey. The title really says it all all while you see alot of dark imagery and you are questioning what is it you are really watching. I interpreted it as the other side of the underneath as symbolism in our minds to always look up n stay positive or else you can lose yourself as these people do in the film obviously. Brilliant art here probably misunderstood by most.
