This is absolutely essential viewing for anyone into experimental film. I cannot believe it is 50 years old, it is absolutely timeless and suggests that we haven't progressed much since. I have never seen music and images work so well together, it's like the drums are fused with the visuals to create a new medium altogether. Stunning creativity and attention to detail, a beautifully 'simple' idea perfectly executed. To think of old Len visualising his then diligently scraping away film emulsion to the beats in his head is very exciting indeed (to me, at least). If you haven't seen this and are into experimental film, track it down - it's as essential as your By Brakhage Criterion DVD.
