"Poetic Justice" is the second installment of American filmmaker Hollis Frampton's "Hapax Legomena" series. Many more should follow and I don't understand why as the level here in this one and in the first was already really low. Not a quality achievement. I can give Frampton somewhat props here for what he attempted, but after a couple seconds it becomes already obvious that this is not the same as reading a book and just a failure overall. This film is in black-and-white and has no sound. The latter aspect is maybe easy on the eyes after the randomly annoying rambling from the first film from this series, but this one here is not any better, just another idea of "bad". Next year, this one will have its 45th anniversary, but there is no reason to celebrate. I highly recommend to stay away.
