GIFT
1993, Warner Bros., 80 min, USA, Dir: Perry Farrell, Casey Niccoli

Jane's Addiction singer and lyricist Perry Farrell directed this surrealistic blend of live footage of the band and fictional vignettes veering from the comic to the nightmarish. An outstanding soundtrack (including not only Jane's Addiction classics like "Been Caught Stealing" but a Sly and the Family Stone cover on which the band is joined by Ice-T) merges with hallucinatory visuals to create a one-of-a-kind cult movie experience. The film garnered an underground reputation on VHS in the ’90s before falling out of print - don't miss the chance to see it on the big screen!
