In this 16 minute short, a director faces a rebellion of sorts when his star tells him she is fed up having to appear naked in pretty well every scene. What follows is an incoherent sequence of scenes - many with female nudity - and it's left entirely to the viewer to determine what it all means.Written by
I would have to disagree, I don't believe it is like Stan Brakhage what so ever. The Kuchar Brothers had a great impact on cinema in the 1960's, and "HOLD ME WHILE I'M NAKED" was a great success in the avant-garde film department. The film is magnicicent in it's own sense. It has all of the elements which make a perfect movie. Cinematography is terrific, and the dialouge is great. What makes this film extra special is the fact that George Kuchar, went back over and recorded his voice, as everyone's. One of the greatest avant-garde filmmakers of our time, i would have to say, but the line between Brakhage is big enough to jump over. In my opinion, if yuo are an aspiring filmmaker, see this film. Don't just watch it once, but several times. It holds more than what is in the frame.
