Ken Rudolph's film is a trip - in a couple of ways. First, it's a pure psychedelic indulgence, with acid-bright colors and rhythmic cutting. Second, for those not into mind-altering drugs, it's meant to depict the fantastic variety of life forms undersea, in the way that a first-time diver might see them: awesome in their complexity and variety, and overwhelming in their sheer imagery. One of the essential elements of this film is the sound track, which consists primarily of JERRY GARCIA's song "Eep Hour", featuring electronic instruments, but highlighted by Jerry's steel guitar solos. To my knowledge, this is the only short film with a Jerry Garcia score. The visuals are cut to match the music, and the combination is synergy personified. One plus one equals at least four! Don't miss this one if you're a 60's/70's fan, a Garcia fan, or simply a lover of outstanding and unique short films. I've loved this since 1974, and time has not diminished its appeal.
