Les chants de Maldoror 1977

“Marudorōru no uta” was Shūji Terayama’s 27-minute attempt to visualize the Comte de Lautreamont’s “Les Chants de Maldoror”, a series of hallucinatory and disturbing prose-poems which were a big influence on the Dada-ists and early Surrealists… Images juxtapose and overlap during scenes awash in lurid colors, weird action sequences move behind strips of static Japanese text and collage art… Nude forms glow in clips of bondage, human personnel interact absurdly with animal counterparts, while a hand randomly scribbles caligraphy at various points throughout… However plotless, this experimental silent short has bizarrely intriguing imagery and an interesting soundtrack, and is worth the view for its artistic merit…
