This week’s random movie is a two for one: DVD 7446 holds two silent movies, Salome and Lot in Sodom. here are our summaries for the films:
Salomé: Salomé dances for King Herod and demands that the head of John the Baptist be brought to her on a platter
Lot in Sodom: A lyrical interpretation of the Biblical Old Testament story based on rhythmical arrangements of symbols rather than on chronological development of action
Salome is based off an Oscar Wilde work, but both Salome Lot in Sodom are great examples of surrealist cinema.
