Glaze of Cathexis (1990)

*** (out of 4)

This Brakhage short runs exactly three minutes and once again features all sorts of strange colors, shapes and objects. I guess the best way to describe this film is as an acid trip meant to give your eyes a real ride. Even though I'm new to this director I can picture many people watching this film and asking what the point of it is and I wouldn't have a good answer for them because I'm not even sure what the point of the movie is. Even with that said, the film drew me in with its strangeness and not once did I get bored even though we're seeing the same type of thing over and over.
