29 January 2004 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I don't know if this is the creme de la creme of the avant garde movie stuff, but using mirroring, speeding up and ssslllooowwwiiinnnggg dddooowwwnnn and zooming in to get "into the amoebic grain pattern itself" is nice for 30 minutes, but for the other 60 (90?) minutes it's too much of the same.

(no, it's different! each frame _seems_ to be the fame, but if you look at the details for about 10 minutes you'll see they're different)

Yawn. The 1905 version was quite a laugh though.
