“There was something suspicious in his voice — I had the feeling I was the last ditch for him.”
Detective Angel Powers (Lydia Lunch) attempts to uncover the truth behind a murder case involving corporate espionage.
Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, this “curious cult film” — an experimental mix of film noir and sci-fi, written and directed by underground favorites Seth B. and Beth B. — “tends to be slow and confusing at times”. Indeed, because the narrative is so difficult to follow, its primary interest lies in the stunning visuals and pulsating soundtrack. Vortex won’t be appealing to most, and was likely included in Peary’s book simply because of Lunch’s one-time notoriety.
- Haunting, creative visuals
- An eerie soundtrack
No, unless you’re curious about experimental indie films before the age of video.
