Subject: RE: music from the film 'the wicker man'?
Maybe it is representitive of the struggle between the community spirit and the 'establishment' that seeks to modernize it and break it up... Pagan based communities carry a torch that many people still respect... especially when you contrast them with the modern American 'Shopping Mall' Christian...

It is also fun to watch a snooping and suspicious cop 'doing good'... and you get the sense that he really does feel righteous... being led, by what the community would feel are blasphemous suspicions, to the joyful public ritual of his firey demise...

But really... for me, the shock appeal of the sexual 'initiation' with the full support and encouragement of the downstairs session is substantive and profoundly educating. Mind blowing. You dig? ttr
