Many things can be thought about Len Lye. a propaganda artist? a peace loving hippie avant la letter? a Brakhage look-a-like? I guess it's all the same, especially if you watch many movies made by Lye after another. true, it's difficult to remain concentrated, because the movies of Len Lye are not really specified: they hand about a lot of things, but remain something that can easily be described as nothing. you can be fixated on the content, which is empty, or you can relax, sit back and let yourself be hypnotized by re-appearing images and forms. only if you have the time and you're open-minded, you can truly enjoy the works of Lye. the meaning of it all? exactly what you wish. I prefer thinking Lye was a peace loving soldier who'd like to show us the good and the bad sides about going to war. Lye is like like Oliver Stone, he gives us the answers and we must form the questions ourselves. and that's not that hard to do or to figure out.
