Shirley Clarke United States, 1955

aurkihnowe's rating of the film Bullfight

Spain's atavistic national "sport" gets interpreted by a dancer, sans danger, in the spirit of Maya Deren's "meditation on violence"...sometimes the dancer seems to be channeling the matador, sometimes (maybe) the bull...unfortunately interspersed with real footage of a bullfight, a multiply stabbed, terrified, angry beast trying to defeat it's tormentor....F#ck bullfighting....
