Legion

Mark Titmarsh
1985

The film originally began as an analysis of the "quest of the historical Lucifer", from the time of the first great rebellion in the spirit world, through his representation in the history of art, to Hollywood biblical epics and culminating in Blatty/Friedkin's "The Exorcist". I was struck by Lucifer's fabled beauty, his status of "Bearer of Light", his similarity to Jesus Christ and the Augustinian notion that Lucifer's fall occurred on the first day of creation, indeed that this fall, was, the separation of light from darkness, the precondition to our visible world.
