Description

CONFESSIONS OF AN OPIUM EATER (1962) Albert Zugsmith directs the immortal Vincent Price in this pulp-pounding fever dream of a film. Ostensibly an adaptation of De Quincey’s famous Confessions of an English Opium Eater, Zugsmith pairs a VO by Price threaded with quotations from the book to a thrilling and dizzying descent into the underworld of early 20th Century Chinatown. Price plays action ready sea-merc Gilbert De Quincey who gets back from the Barbary Coast just in time for a Tong war. De Quincey chases the action — and the dragon — into the hidden labyrinths of Chinatown while trying to break up a White Slavery ring. A dual precursor to both the pulp revivalism of films like Big Trouble in Little China and sixties psychedelic cinema like The Trip, Confessions is as addictive as any little flick can be.
