the ledge - flash version*

*

Haunting and hypnotic meditations on art, movies, literature, and life. In 'Dream of a Clean Slate,' Jackson Pollock the man struggles with the separation he feels from Jackson Pollock the artist; 'The Judgement of Psycho,' probes the sexual dynamic of Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins in Psycho, and then delves into the relationship between Hector and Paris in the Iliad; and Orson Welles presides over 'Crimes at Midnight,' a tense evocation of desire and its consequences. A series of myths for modern times.
