San Francisco Cinematheque says…

"In the 1950s, San Francisco Beat poet Christopher Maclaine made four films—The End, The Man Who Invented Gold, Beat and Scotch Hop. These films—with a collective running time of only sixty minutes—have largely been located at the margins of film history, the subject of rumor and speculation, largely unscreened and underappreciated. They have, nonetheless, exerted a strong influence on the language of cinema, profoundly influencing and anticipating the work of Stan Brakhage, Bruce Conner, Robert Nelson and countless others. Entwining the ecstatic and the absurd to a delirious degree these films never fail to provoke audience excitement with their hallucinatory and apocalyptic visions..." - Brecht Andersch & Steve Polta
