Is America A Good Place For Genius?
"Why this particular footage from Fantasia (1940) and 9 1/2 Weeks (1986) works so well together I will never really know. The title is a quote from a Donald Barthelme short story called The Genius (1971). The quote seemed to unite the American imagery with The Doors' soundtrack in a meaningful way. I probably thought I was making a penetrating cultural critique with this video. Hell, maybe I was." - MD
