Scissors Cut Paper
14 January 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This film, which can be seen on the Netherlands Film Museum site on YouTube, if among the last gasp of the "magic act" film. It was very population its day, mostly because Amelie's had been a stage magician (as had the director of this film, Walter Booth, for several years Melies' chief rival). It was being swept away, both by it being old hat at this point, and its incorporation into film grammar. It was no longer enough to make a whole film.

Nonetheless, this is a handsome example of the file, incorporating, as it does, the sort of stop-motion an action provided by Emile Cohl to many of the middle works of Segundo de Chomon. It maintains some interest as the evolutionary end of the line, although there's nothing here that you have not seen before.
