Apostasy (Zbigniew [Peter] Friedrich, 1979) Rod McNicol, Juliet Bacskai, Phil Motherwell, Paul Cox; review by Scott Murray in Murray 1995: 28; fantasy; 108 min.

... typical of many low-budget films made during the 1970s. Shot on 16mm, wth an essentially unprofessional cast and inexperienced crew, it is very personalised and personal film-making ... The Man is notable mostly his extremely pessimistic muttering about all and sundry; he sounds as if he has been shut up with a vast library of 1970s New Age books and is now released on speed. One's reaction to the film depends almost exclusively on how interesting one finds his verbosity. Scott Murray in Murray 1995: 28.
