Flaming Creatures: Mad Beauties and Glam Bitches

This film is exactly everything this blog is about. it is a seminal piece of controversial art by the underrated but super important contributor to the avant-garde, camp, and just film in general Jack Smith. I don't care if you don't watch experimental films. Do yourself a favor and sit your butt down for an hour and watch this. Firstly, it's notorious for being (among tons of other stuff) rarely available. Apparently only 3 or so copies exist in the world. Secondly, you'll be able to experience the birth of camp culture, drag culture, and what eventually became glam culture. It's finally available in all of it's raw genius on the internet, so do yourself a favor. Take an hour of your day to watch it. You may very well hate it, but you won't forget it. I have blogged about this film early on. Check it out for some early insight.

Here is the link to the full film, I can't wait to hear what you thought about it.
