OMPHALOS: A Chapter from the Hag Movie
The Hag talks: a dialog between the artist and his muse—his desires, his searching—her enticement, her provocation. What will you do to me tonight? she asks. Something wicked—perverse? It is a kind of erotic pas de deaux, a dance of love and despair...
I returned to Mexico. I met Cristina, who spoke good English. It was immediately clear that she was an excellent actress. I wrote dialog for the two of us, inspired by her talent, her intelligence, and her daring. My own words were always spoken off-camera—I played the anonymous author, and in any case it was Cristina the camera loved, not me.
