4.8/5 The most personal film of all time, but at the same time The universal film. Hard to describe, 5 hours of immersion into the greatness of nothing. Nothing... like the fragments of ecstasy of a certain summer back in time or like some glimpses of beauty in Your daytime.
Usually on the 4th of July, which happens to be today, I fall prey to watching fireworks from some ambiguous rooftop in Brooklyn. Tonight, I stayed in the shadows, and experienced this masterpiece that is tantamount to any pyrotechnics. Not much to say about this film about nothing. Except that it is everything. And you must fondly accept.
Its not just some restored footages from your family camera.Its like having this amount of material and put it in the hands of a great craftsman such as Mekas,along with his narrating voice,there u have a flawless masterpiece about nothing....nothing but beauty of life,babies,lights in the room,smiles and cats!
