JACK SMITH’S NORMAL LOVE AND UNDERGOUND OPULENCE
Various Filmmakers | 1906-63
*Live Music by Makia Matsumara
7:00 at Museum of Moving Image  

“If Flaming Creatures was a claustrophobic world of decadence and rebirth, in Normal Love Smith’s creatures (here even more iconic than in the preceding film) lay siege on the garden of Eden, overturning it to, yet again, revel in the fantastic opulence of the body and, sadly, yet again, they are punished…This is a bizarre world of Mummies and Werewolves, of Cake ladies and Mermaids, but this idea of normalizing the abnormal is eventually what makes it work, and it does quite well. Smith maps a world whose oddities are far more traditional than anything we know as traditional. This is what made him such an essential contribution to the world of experimental cinema.”                  – Bradford Nordeen, Being Boring
