  • Douglas Reese's rating of the film Barr 1985

    The single moment I realized film editing as an art - and since he created it with two VCRs and a lot of commitment, it inspired me. I also realized home video footage as the haunting and undervalued medium it is. The way real people are documented from a personal lens, with all the pros and cons that come with it. Without having seen this, I may have never realized what I'd want to do from an artistic standpoint.
