the ordinary brakhage treat
I pledged that I would review EVERY SINGLE film on the "By Brakhage: An Anthology Volume 2" release from Criterion, but this task is getting more and more difficult. While I do love Brakhage, there is no way of denying that his films can get quite repetitive, since he uses many of the same exact techniques in practically every one of his films. That being said, this is still a decent short film if you enjoy the avant garde-it is MUCH better than Brakhage's dreadfully boring short "The Process". It centers around the death and burial of a bid-but that certainly isn't all that happens! Like any Brakhage film, it soon turns into a symphony of beautiful and (sometimes) headache inducing images, everything from children to a fireplace to trees is filmed with Brakhage's unique talent-making the ordinary extraordinary.
