Sophie's Place1986

  • 3.5
Five years in the making, Lawrence Jordan's feature-length "alchemical autobiography" SOPHIE'S PLACE takes as its inspiration the story of the Greek goddess of wisdom, Sophia. Writes Jordan, "I must emphasize that I do not know the exact significance of any of the symbols in the film any more than I know the meaning of my dreams... I hope that the symbols and the episodes set off poetic associations in the viewer. I mean them to be entirely open to the viewer's own interpretation."

This is a great movie to treat yourself to. It's pure enjoyment all the way through. No need for dramatic conflict plot arc, or consistent characters here. Instead a continual peak experience as we identify with the flux. Beautiful images sometimes flash in a stroboscopic effect that is ecstatic. Should be more well known movie!
