What are people saying?

  • Karthik's rating of the film Compound Eyes Nos. 1-5

    An attempt to defamiliarize vision that uses as its tether the 'other' eyes that look upon our lived space, the eyes of insects, spiders, fish etc. For me the more successful films attempt less by way of conscious trope (e.g. the compound eyes of the skyscraper in Odonata) but give themselves up to their own imaginative energies (e.g. No. 5 that sets the cold subaqueous eye behind the frenzy of urban lights)
