Movie Info

One of the most celebrated of all underground films, Flaming Creatures excited national censorship controversies in its day and was even denounced (and screened!) in the halls of the U.S. Senate. Jack Smith had hit a nerve with his delirious tribute to the 1940s screen star Maria Montez. (The soundtrack even includes a chunk of her 1943 release Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.) A hilarious and startling version of Arabian exotica, Flaming Creatures was shot on backdated black-and-white film

Unrated,

Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures took the avant garde to a new level.

Audience Reviews for Flaming Creatures

I hated this stupid experimental movie, I had to watch it for a class. That's an hour I'll never get back. Anyway, it's slow and boring and annoyingly redundant. I don't recommend it.

An ugly, tedious, amateurish film, composed of cavorting drag queens, random breast-squeezing and, oh yes, something resembling a tongue-in-cheek, tongue-in-pussy gang rape. The filmmaking is more about editing than direction -- a chaotic collage of handheld close-ups. Though "Flaming Creatures" is only 42 minutes, I can't imagine sitting through it without taking at least one cleansing break. I needed about 10, myself.

If you automatically applaud any movie that depicts the homosexual lifestyle, shows genitals or looks like it was made for $20, don't miss this.
