fascinating little film by brakhage during his earlier filmmaking years
30 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At times, Brakhage's works almost seem like the cinematic equivalent of the stream of consciousness writing style that is often associated with some of the greatest, yet most challenging, works of literature. Both styles are somewhat fast and disorienting, but they're also beautiful and interesting-a true look at the human mind and what surrounds it.

This film is definitely very interesting, despite having no story or structure whatsoever. It is really just a collection of images that Brakhage shot one day, and these images grow more and more fascinating as the film explodes into a festival of color and movement. Most of the visuals are unbelievably stunning(the train footage is especially breathtaking). Brakhage is very unique in the way that he makes mundane objects seem beautiful and surreal.
