Swinging the Lambeth Walk is another unusual Len Lye animation short
Another Len Lye animated short which has paint abstracted directly on film. The music is, as usual, an excellent score for its period. It begins and ends with a silhouette of a hand with its thumb pointed up. I guess all I can say after having seen so many of these Len Lye shorts on YouTube is if you've got a taste for the unusual, or the possibly bizarre, or a collage of colors, white lines, and shadows, if you don't mind seeing something that makes you think you're in some kind of mind trip, then anything by Len Lye should be what you're looking for. Swinging the Lambeth Walk can be one of the most trippiest experiences you've ever have without taking any controlled substances. So by all means, seek this one out!
