About this item
Combining the theatrical surrealism of Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco, the pop-art playfulness of Richard Lester, scathing social critique, genuine pathos and the mind-boggling imagery for which writer-director Lech Majewski ("The Garden of Earthly Delights", "Glass Lips") is renowned, "Gospel According to Harry" is a wholly original cinematic tour de force. Years before the Lord of the Rings trilogy catapulted him to international superstardom, Viggo Mortenson ("Eastern Promises", "A History of Violence") played Wes, a young husband locked in co-dependent discontent with his beautiful and needy wife Karen (Jennifer Rubin, "The Doors"). Their future prospects as barren as the sun-bleached dunes that are the surreal setting for their one room existence, Wes and Karen go through the dehumanizing motions of a modern life in which happiness is as ephemeral and elusive as the grains of sand beneath their feet. Boasting a remarkable cast, including 60's British film icon Rita Tushingham ("Doctor Zhivago"), haunting visuals, and incisive wit, "Gospel According to Harry" - which was produced for David Lynch's Propaganda Films - is at last ready for discovery, available here for the first time on DVD.
