there really isn't much to say about this one...
2 January 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

It's not hard for me to tell why this title does not already have at least one other user review. This is because the film just simply feels like "another Stan Brakhage movie". It doesn't really add or take away anything from his filmography. As someone who absolutely loves this filmmaker, I must admit that this brief short almost felt like an eternity at times. While there were some very visually fascinating moments throughout, after a while this film was just flat out BORING! There seriously is not much more to it-it is dull and overlong and could have never been made and nothing would have changed when it comes to Brakhage and the history of experimental cinema.

I really wished I was watching some of Brakhage's more well known, classic films like "Dog Star Man" or "Mothlight" or even "The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes" or "Window Water Baby Moving" despite their explicit, gross out content. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with owning only the 2nd volume of criterion's "By Brakhage" releases. Oh, if only I had the first installment!
