Lot in Sodom

USA, English, 28 mins

  • Director: James Sibley Watson; Melville Webber
  • Producer: Bernard O'Brien; James Sibley Watson

CGiii Comment

Quite remarkable for its day.

The SFX and editing are innovative and very effective.

Apart from all those attributes, the film itself is a croc of shit.

As with most early arthouse cinema, it is incomprehensible and self-indulgent - and, that can be said of most modern arthouse as well.

The(ir) Blurb...

“While obeying the biblical account concerning Lot and his family and the function of the two angels who investigate Sodom at the Lord’s behest,” critic Parker Tyler once noted, “the Watson-Webber work uses all its creative accents to depict the sensual responses of the male homosexuals of Sodom to the physical beauty of the foremost angel. Naturally the angel repulses their advances and proceeds (not finding fifty chaste persons present) to condemn Sodom to the flames, but not before we have witnessed, at some length, the orgiastic pleasures of the all-male population.”
