William Hayden (M W Daniels) summons a woman by occult means, first and
foremost to fulfill his suppressed desires, but that woman, Holly
(Kimberley Thornhill), is elusive at first, only giving William so much
that he yearns for more. It's only eventually that he manages to fully
subjugate her to his will - or so he thinks, as Holly wants more than just
tend to his various kinks - and she has the means to get it ...
less than likely that I do The Affliction Table justice with above
synopsis, as the strength of the film is not so much its story but the way
it's told: For starters, The Affliction Table is a film that's
dialogue-free, but presents its story in big and carefully crafted
tableaus with their own colour scheme, while much of the story is laid out
in associative images rather than in an in-your-face way. And the rather
otherworldly soundscape accompanying the proceedings helps make this a
very impressive and rather unusual work of art.
