Now I have seen a lot of garbage from American experimental filmmaker Hollis Frampton recently, but this one here, "Magellan: At the Gates of Death, Part I: The Red Gate I, 0", despite the overlong and pretentious title was actually a bearable watch. There are some okay moments in terms of the genre and it does not drag as much as Frampton's usual stuff, even if it is not among his shortest works with a runtime of approximately 5 minutes. This does not mean it was a good watch though. I would call it mediocre at best, it is just better than all the really bad and uninteresting films he has made in his career. My verdict for this little film here is still a negative one. Thumbs down.
