Fuck man. I didn't know Bruce on a personal level but I like many people was definitely personally involved with his work. The first Paradise Lost film came out when I was in high school and like many people my age it had a profound impact on my life. The film was about a horrific triple child murder that led to an indictment and trial of three nonconformist boys based on questionable evidence. This was the first film that brought out a pure sense of hopelessness and rage in me. I was beyond effected, I was changed. I assume that I always had a lefty "fuck the man" leaning deep in my soul but this film brought it screaming to the surface. My voice has never carried a deep resonance but seeing Bruce's film.... it taught me to never hesitate when I felt I should raise it.
here is the entire film
