brakhage takes on war
30 December 2016 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

Many viewers seem to find Stan Brakhage to be a very boring filmmaker, and I respectfully disagree. I find Brakhage's style to be filled with elements of excitement, magic, and intensity-and these three elements are quite prominent in the first part of Brakhage's breathtaking and shocking take on the Vietnam War, "23rd Psalm Branch".

This film is an exploration of the worst of mankind. It is a startling, intense, and, at times, disturbing work of art that is filled with the same thrills as any "normal" war film. This is a colorful, powerful, and fascinating little movie that I would recommend highly for those that can handle Brakhage's style without dosing off.
