For some reason YouTube now allows me to upload clips longer than 15 minutes, so I’m able to put this online without breaking it apart. I shot most of it in Duluth on some very hot summer days back in the early 1980s. The film is older than my adult kids. I’ve never been completely happy with the narration but I still like some of the images. The title translates to “a sick man’s dream.”

Harkens toward some of the finer Spaghetti Western moments, nothing like the Moog to evoke a sense of doom and insanity.

The actor Tom Cole was perhaps better known as an artist in Duluth. He created the fiberglass pineapple that sits atop the Overman Building on West First Street. Tom died of ALS not long after this film first came out.

This is great footage. I was just about to ask where Thomas Kohl is today. I was envisioning a new movie with him in which some of this film is used in a flashback scene. So it goes.
