Jason's rating of the film Portrait of Jason

Hadn't seen it in well over a decade. Saw it projected on 35mm last night. Jason lives forever. The skull often seen behind him on Shirley Clarke's shelf reminding us of the fact that he will in another sense very much not. Portrait of Jason is about performance and the death drive. It is more devastating then I remember, though I recalled that it was unkind. Jason lives forever. Whatever Jason is. We will all die.
