A good movie

To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be a really weird experimental movie, almost a documentary but with no dialogue or comment whatsoever.

Psychedelic Swingin' 60s & 70s Film (57 movies items)

" According to Kenneth Anger, Scorpio is the zodiac sign that rules both the sex organs and machinery, so it seemed like a good choice for the title. "Rising" implies the astrological term "ascendant." It is considered by many to be one of the first post-modern films and a direct influence on such avant garde directors as Martin Scorsese and David Lynch."
