The Mysteries of Hieronymus Bosch

Never been one to get overly excited about Hieronymus Bosch but this was a fun documentary. I love good conspiracy theories and I'm always amused how various decades bring about hate for religious cults and Satan worshipers. I don't remember much of the 70s but I do remember every "bad" person was either a Hells Angel or practiced witchcraft or something to do with the occult. In 200 years people will probably look at his work and think far less preposterous things, like maybe he had a bad case of food poisoning when he painted certain things. A high fever can make anyone hallucinate you know.
