Director: George Kuchar
Like Hold Me While I'm Naked, Rhapsody is as much about the difficulty of staging the drama as drama itself. Grand pianist Edgar is trying to recount his memoirs for biographer Camillo: they are both seeking someone to play Edgar's old flame who died in a sudden skiing accident. Eva appears and its Vertigo all over again until the colour and editing drown out the narrative. One of Kuchar's most visually emphatic films
— like a knock-down-throw-about Frank
Tashlin overlaid on Roger Corman's The
Masque of the Red Death.
