Educational films as 'Art'
21 November 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

Which of course, brings me to the films of Ray and Charles Eames. The Eames brothers really dared to fool around with the question 'What is a ephemeral film?' (Much like Herk Harvey I suppose) and proceed to put their own arty spin (I do believe initially they were architects) on these films. On 'A Communication Primer', from beginning to end, we're faced with an odd history of communication, told with interesting images and off-putting strange narration that seems dull and boring, but never really wrong for this type of movie. Like their animated stuff, this film is not for everyone. I know a couple of people who swear that the Eames are total geniuses, and maybe they are.. I just am not a big fan.
