You Made Me Hate Myself


You Made Me Hate Myself
Directed by Christian Doherty. Filmed: 1973.
One of Doherty's most bizarre – and disturbing – movies. It features the frequent star of the director's later movies, Evan Jones, as a maladjusted serial murderer of his wife (Emily Gould), a prostitute, and various other women. It is unusual because of its lack of the regular Apar cast (Tom Soter is the nominal hero, Alan Saly has a bit part, and Tom Sinclair is nowhere to be seen) and its obsession with violence against women. It's no longer spy movie stuff but an attempt at somethig psychologically deep. Best sequence: the party.
