Andy Warhol called this "great!" but until we got an email from one of our readers (thanks dude), I didn't even know it existed. He used words like non-linear, and said fans of Burroughs and PKD would love this. Oddly, co-director Jane Arden committed suicide 3 years after the film and Jack Bond hasn't done much of anything since.

Anti-Clock, which was released in 1980, has just been restored from the original negative and reissued by the BFI (British Film Institute). I know nothing about this other then what little I can find including a short, grainy clip on youtube, so if you know anything about this, please elaborate. You can purchase the region 2 DVD here.

Sebastianne Saville stars as a young fellow who reacts to the modern, atom-dominated society by withdrawing from it. He 'makes peace' with the threat of nuclear holocaust by wandering aimlessly about, refusing to be bound by minutes, hours or days.

And a description from Newsweek:
A complex and fascinating experimental exploration of time and identity. Anti-Clock is a film of authentic, startling originality. Brilliantly mixing cinema and video techniques, Arden and Bond have created a movie that captures the anxiety and sense of danger that has infiltrated the consciousness of so many people in western society. Filled with high tension and high intelligence, Anti-Clock is mysterious, disturbing, fascinating and exciting'. (Jack Kroll, Newsweek)
