The Savage Eye is a gorgeous black and white film that is part docu-essay, part drama. It was shot on weekends over the course of three years. The film follows a divorced woman as she wanders around the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, to burlesque shows, parties, wrestling matches, and beauty parlors, all the while conversing with the male voice of her conscious. It is a wonderful film.
The series, My Atlas, ends this Friday, Aug. 22, with a screening of Vagabond introduced by Vanessa Veselka. 7:30pm at elysian: 2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, CA 90039 ($10)
