  1. Eric Rucker's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    Not a patch on Len Lye, for my money. Neglects abstract plastic qualities in favor of graphic figurative qualities, which work against the musicality of the image. Some fun sequences scattered throughout, but the hodge-podge, like so much of it undermines the basic filmic nature. Great title sequence. Great music choices, though, so too bad McLaren et al didn't rise to the occasion.

  10. Zachary W's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    Begone Dull Care is a masterclass in texture and movement. Few films I've seen display such a powerful understanding of the interplay of music and shape.

  12. luis's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    Superbe orchestrations des mouvements d'abstraction, parfois sur plusieurs plans différents. Passages émouvants. Excellente musique, rythmé et entraînante, de Peterson.

  13. Jose Sarmiento Hinojosa's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    A fantastic merge of the arts, jazz and cinema, sinesthesia at work, a celebration of life!. Highly recommended.

  14. Nick Block's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    I can't imagine how painstaking it was to draw all of that. Overall good. Second and third parts were better than the first. Too much Mickey Mousing in the beginning.

    oscar peterson trio meets abstract equals joy

  17. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Begone Dull Care

    Talk about a successful experiment! I'm amazed at how perfectly and timely these beautiful and abstract yet appropriate images were displayed on screen. The fact that this was made back in 1949 impresses me very much. Also the jazz is superb.
