3 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is an experimental short that is guaranteed to try the patience of most folk that manage to catch it. It's a (nearly)20 minute short of William S.Burroughs & Bryon Gysin in a disconnected series of images, with a soundtrack consisting of the phrases "Yes", "Hello","Look At That Picture", and a few others. At times, it seems to have a (kind of) Andy Warhol like texture to it. Either way, it's going to either amuse or irritate some people who do manage to see it. Like 'Towers Open Fire', 'Ghosts At Number Nine', and some others, this film seems to feel like an extended dream sequence (probably something to do with Gysin/Burrough's cut up technique,first applied to Gysin's paintings, then Burrough's writing,then tape recordings,then film,itself).
