Maelstrom

IMPENETRABLE MELODRAMA out of the same school as 1983’s THE WATERFALL (“It’s beautiful!”), comprising a procession of endless shots of fjords, burning houses, ultra-soft sex scenes and…some dolls. Always the dolls. At the same time some kind of of mystical murder plottery was going on, but nobody had a clue, both taking part and watching. Became “why oh why” cause celebre on POINTS OF VIEW.

    Weirder than weird and a joint production with the Norwegians, where Maelstrom was set. No one knew exactly what it was about and no one was any the wiser when it finished. It made Twin Peaks look mainstream.
