Amazing way to look at how inanimate objects can eloquently fill the frame...
30 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film is an amazing exploration between boy and man & mother and son. This sexually charged film is not only ahead of it's time in humor and metaphors, but the way Mr. Broughton fills the frame with various inanimate objects is quite beautiful. It is like a dream. Experimental Film at one of its finer moments. You can only watch this on 16mm - no other format is available.
