SPOILER: Purely for fans that have already seen Psych-Out! This image marks the moment of truth in the film. I really like how Laszlo Kovacs shot and framed this stunt sequence , especially playing off the many natural light sources in it, and as well how they pulled off the overall complexity with it while giving it a very palpable real world edge as if the moment truly was unfolding right before our eyes and peril lurking in every frame.
