Does anyone have any general opinions about John and Yoko's films?

I saw Apotheosis, Fly, Two Virgins, Erection, and Up Your Legs Forever last night.

They definitely have a mind altering effect on the viewer.  Up Your Legs Forever especially put me into a kind of trance state where my perception was altered...I don't want to say that it "put me to sleep" exactly, because it wasn't boring.  It was more the images and the camera work.

Don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil anything.  I hate it when authors, critics or others give away details of movies.

The infamous Bottoms (which is actually called Four) is on YouTube, along with a couple of others (which I'll try and sort links for).

When I see Bottoms, I am always reminded of the magnificent A Thousand Feet of Film by Ron Nasty (who!?! who!?!) and Chasity from The Rutles' All You Need is Cash.

John talks about the Rape film during his interview with Andy Peebles on the 6th December 1980, its 8:44 in and you can listen to it and the full interview on youtube (im currently reading the full interview transcript but cant find a copy online tho, anyone come across it?).

[Theres probably a load of sirens going off in some US Government Office as i type this as im typing the word 'Rape' and posting a link, albeit to youtube. a-hard-days-night-paul-11 May also be best for no-one to post the Self-Portrait film as Joe's website will be blacklisted and whoever does will be banned for life.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6]
