Quotes

Himself - Presenter: [about opening sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey] Editing in film usually cuts out time. This famous cut, from pre-human life to the time of space travel, cuts out more time than any other edit in movie history.

New Directors, New Forms
6 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apparently in the 1960s, film goes global -- which seems odd from this documentary, which has been pushing the concept of Russian and Japanese films (among others) since the first or second segment. But now we are venturing into eastern Europe...

We explore the Polish directors Andrzej Wajda (whose work is unknown to me) and Roman Polanski (whose work I have seen all of). Cousins considers "Fearless Vampire Killers" among Polanski's best work, which is an incredibly bold statement. I would tend to put it among his lowest.

We get a glimpse of the Czech New Wave, with such films as "Daisies" and "The Hand". I know practically nothing of Czech cinema, so this had me running out and picking u pa few items.

Of course, we cannot talk about 1960s film without getting to "Easy Rider" and Roger Corman. Hooray for artsy, pre-1970s entertainment and romance.
