Now THAT is color! And light from color in a way that is very rare outside of painting (it is simply rare in painting). This must be an immensely influential film; I could see and hear the DNA of so many filmmakers flowing out of this one, David Lynch, especially. In turn, it flowed from so much in such a rich way: Whitman, Léger, Man Ray, William Carlos Williams, Sheeler, Demuth . . . Thanks, Fandor!
A real transformation of the senses, and one of the most tactile films my eyes have touched recently. Like most films of its kind, however, the affect wears a little thin at points. I kind of feel that these films are best kept the length of a tight pop song, or the duration before the tantalizing taste and texture of a good dish becomes commonplace on the tongue.
Another awesome recommendation and streaming option from mubi. Avant-Garde film with many conections to european avant gardes in the early 20's, with a twist on the subject matter and a dosis of impressonist observational quality
I've never seen anything like this before but it was certainly interesting. There wasn't much to it really. A TV screen doesn't do it justice, I'll admit, but it went on for a fair bit longer than I felt it needed to. I've had worse 10 minutes though, in fairness.
The concept was great, but poorly executed. We saw other films in that time exploiting this concept and Castro Street scored lower in many senses,
2 out of 5 because it was an strange idea at those times
