"i suppose he finds me attractive."
"he knows it's wrong, he feels terrible about it, but the desire is growing and growing. desire can be a very powerful and frightening sensation. how does he deal with it? he invents a creature, an evil, ugly, evil-tempered spirit which is just a picture of his own desire."
furie takes the film's supernatural dimension and transposes it to our own dimension as spectators. a movie about cinema. a woman gets home at night and when entering her room she is suddenly attacked by an invisible force, an entity diegetically and the audience's gaze symbolically. it's basically a patriarchal gender hierarchy that establishes this freudian desire for hershey's figure, but she, as an image, resists our constant exploitations. because the matter looks back at me, and maybe i am a prisoner to the film's structure too. makes a lot more sense after watching tscherkassky's 'outer space'.
