And just when you think it can't get any faster... That final minute ("Praise be God" is the text that precedes it) is just... You got to see it.
Brakhage said this his favorite of his own films. It's certainly up there. This is like one hundred thousand images rushing at you (and 90k of those near the end) to the point that you might lose your mind if you're not careful. Try to imagine if that final orchestra portion of the Beatles "A Day in the Life" were hand-painted pieces of film going 24 frames a second. This is passionate, alive cinema where the pulse is big enough to see from space. I assume the day I see this in a darkened theater on actual film with nothing but projector noise behind me will be the day I go insane.
