Like a home movie filmed by a drunk.
26 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This short film is from "American Film Treasures/Avant Garde Film: Disc 1"--a compilation of mostly forgotten art films of the 20th century. This DVD set is NOT for the casual viewer and sometimes I wonder why I watched the films--as some of them were VERY artsy and weird! Saul Levine's film, "Note to Pati", is completely silent--and looks in many ways like a badly shot home movie on 8mm stock. There are lots of abrupt cuts, shifts away from the subject and graininess to the film (I am not sure if this graininess was intentional or not). Much of the footage is a family cavorting about in the snow but it's really hard to tell what is happening due to the jerky motions of the camera. Frankly, I know it's supposed to be art, but it looks like a film Uncle Leo made back in the 1960s when he was highly intoxicated and his cataracts were really, really bad.
