Movie Info

Based on a song by Leonard Cohen, this peculiar experimental film set in late-'60s San Francisco was executive-produced by game-show mogul Gene Barry, the director's father. It concerns Suzanne (Sondra Locke), who gets crucified in a film-within-a-film which receives much of the screen time. Suzanne is meant to be a Christ figure, and the story focuses on her use as a doomed symbol for the beliefs of Manson-like filmmaker Jared Martin. Richard Dreyfuss and Paul Sand are among the cast of this offbeat, grungy little film which deserves points for originality if nothing else.
