Exhibiting extreme stylization and thematic influence by the German Expressionists, this silent feature from co-directors Mike McKown and Jim Towns tells of two lovers, the gorgeous Esmeralda and her exiled paramour, Janick (Josh Ebel), whose relationship nearly comes to a bitter end when she contracts a deadly case of the plague. Mercifully, Janick discovers a cure in the last waning moments and attempts to save her life. Towns and McKown employ title cards in the manner of early-20th century

Jim Towns and Mike McKown's Prometheus Triumphant: A Fugue in the Key of Flesh is an admirably ambitious homage to the pure emotional power of the classic silent cinema.
Prometheus Triumphant sets lofty goals for itself but fails to find an original entry point or live up to its objectives.
