Was a time when you could actually just walk into a gallery and look at the Vermeers. I became aware of Vermeer with the movie 'A Zed and Two Noughts'. This came about 5 years later. Saw it on PBS and loved it.
my first exposure to jon jost. this is a hauntingly dreamy and hypnotic film that floats back and forth between more conventional narrative-type scenes and dialogue to long, sparse scenes often consisting of very long single takes.
