John and Yoko's uncredited remake of Samuel Beckett's "Film"
12 December 2004 | by (south Texas USA) – See all my reviews

My copy of this is many generations removed from the Austrian TV showing from which it was taken, so if there is any subtlety to the photography, then I probably missed it. What I see is a pastiche of Samuel Beckett's "Film"--which I'm sure a Fluxus person such as Yoko would have been aware of, and John probably was too--where someone is running away from the camera, trying to hide, but being "invaded" and "violated", hence the provocative title. That's it, and it goes on for over an hour. There doesn't seem to be much if any dramatic tension to the chase, and the whole thing must have been more interesting in "concept" than it turned out to be in execution. Maybe with a pristine print on an actual movie screen I would be more impressed, but I have a feeling the result would still be tedious and pretentious. Don't expend much effort or money to find a copy of this.
