Dead upon arrival
12 May 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"The Dead" is a 10-minute short film from over 55 years ago already and a collaboration between filmmaker Stan Brakhage, back then really early in his career still) and Kenneth Anger, two names that are fairly respected in the experimental movie scene, probably back then even more than today. And Anger's influence shows as the title certainly fits his usually darker approach to movies. But I am not the greatest Brakhage fan at all and this movie is just another disappointment. I am fairly glad it was over so quickly as the action was truly uninteresting and it was virtually impossible to see what was going on. The result may also be a lowpoint in Anger's career. I do not recommend the watch.
