Relaxing Experimental and Mathematical Film
22 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lines: Horizontal is a movie made by etching lines directly onto film, like its sister Lines: Vertical. The entire movie consists of horizontal lines dancing in various mathematical patterns to beautiful music, and is a relaxing (and sometimes exciting) experience. As you can probably guess, Lines: Vertical is much the same except with vertical lines and different music.

Lines: Horizontal, in my opinion, has better music than Lines: Vertical. These two movies were later combined into Mosaic, by the same director. While interesting, Mosaic lacks the charms and beautiful musical accompaniment of the two Lines', making Lines: Horizontal my favorite out of the bunch.
