minority opinion, but this feels like where Lucas finds himself most as a USC filmmaker
4 February 2017 | by MisterWhiplashSee all my reviews

This was beautiful. I never read the Cummings poem this is based on, but I have some sense of what is going on here involving a guy who can teleport with a camera, a happy couple, and the people who the teleporter photographer can take away into his world. The music is sweet, and it carries the audience along with the montage, which is more melodic and less harsh and cold than the other early Lucas shorts. In fact, outside of Electronic Labyrinth, this is my favorite of the USC batch of films (color and widescreen certainly helps).

It's probably too abstract to be enjoyed more than once or twice, but something about it clicked for me - call it the gone-but-not-forgotten student filmmaker - and I appreciated that Lucas was trying something much different than his 'statement' films (Look at Life, Freiheit) or being completely into tone-poem land (Herbie and 6-18-67). This has human beings, it has a self-conscious and sort of knowing quality, and, in a shallow bit of props, it's pretty to look at and the pacing is sensational.
