At once wryly comedic travelogue and heartbreaking tale of love lost, THE JAPANESE SANDMAN is a visual interpretation of a letter William Burroughs' wrote to Allen Ginsberg in 1953, ... See full summary »
"The Cut-Ups" is a 20-minute experimental film from 1966 made by Antony Balch, who also made the 1963-film "Towers Open Fire".
Basic about this movie: The film has little to no plot, we see a man doing some paintings and calligraphic designs, while an another man is packing a suitcase, having a phone call etc. The soundtrack is nothing more than repeated words like "yes, "hello", "look at that picture", "thank you" and some more words. The editing itself is very quick.
The above mentioned repeated words might be enough to either make you amazed or crazy/annoyed. I even mentioned briefly about this film to my big sister; she would have gone crazy just after a few minutes. I was more of the "amazed" ones, and laughed throughout this short flick.
So basically, this is not your typical British film ala products from BBC, Channel 4, UK Film Council and similar companies, due to the fact this is an avant-garde film. Well worth a look if you find this film. Also worth checking out "Towers Open Fire".
