See it with your own eyes
Shuji Terayama's rarely-screened Emperor Tomato Ketchup has just been added to the SF Cinematheque's Cinema of Shock program showing at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts this Sunday. Other films being screened Jon Moritsugu's Mommy Mommy, Where's My Brain and Stan Brakhage's non-exploitation autopsy documentary the Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes. I'm not sure I'll ever have the stomach to see that film with my own eyes again, though I'm glad I watched it once. So don't expect to see me at the YBCA this weekend, even though I'd very much like to see the Terayama film.
