    Now seen every available Victor Halperin film so will ascend to a higher plain of existence, bye. Squinting for the Halperin touch but there's not really anything there (only one cool optical transition), but there's a bit of cross over with the general strangeness poverty row films have and the general odd decisions you see being made in them. More than a few similarities with Mulholland Drive. Very sickly scene where a young girl stares into the camera while singing and playing the piano which feels dustily Lychian.

    Jerry vs "THE SYSTEM" in these films usually ends up with a win for Jerry or some interesting draw, I'm probably doing a bit of mental gymnastics while wearing my galaxy brain hat to read them that way, but in this one, for Jerry to be so completely and willingly absorbed, both mind and body, felt like such a betrayal.
