The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."

Jess Franco's Sexadelic Horror ClassicIts score was allegedly "reprised" by Tarantino for Jackie Brown.

Allegedly? There's a Vampyros Lesbos cue (Lions and Cucumbers by "Vampires Sound Incorporation", a.k.a. German musicians Manfred Hubler and Siegfried Schwab) right on the Jackie Brown soundtrack CD.

In all its low budget glitz with dubbing and sensuality,Soledad manages to turn in a rather sympathetic performance thats actually endearing in its way..I feel your loneliness..I feel your Pain!. :o( :o))

I remeber being quite impressed with
"100 Rifles" back in the day.

I'm not sure if it was the sparkling dialogue,
or the panoramic cinematography,
or the moving characteizations.

But something really caught my attention.

Tommy C: I'm pretty sure this shot is actually from She Killed In Ecstacy, filmed back-to-back with Vampyros Lesbos.
