"....only scratches the surface..."
5 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Free Radicals" consists of Chodorov briefly talking about himself and his own background with art films, interviews with many art film makers (some living some done before the artists died), clips, discussion of an art film museum and the difficulty marketing and making money from the films.

Pip Chodorov made this film about art/avant garde films. Because it's more of a homage, it's not a true history and isn't exhaustive. Fortunately, Chodorov acknowledges this and admits that the film does not talk about all the important art films or art film makers.

So who is the audience? After all, most folks hate art films and have very little appreciation for them. I like art films much more than the average person and I must admit that some of them I can't stand either! So, this is a hard-sell film--and I can see why Turner Classic Movies showed it very late at night! But, for the right person, this film is clearly a must-see.
