  1. Natty's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    It tickled me how he neglected to note any human name but got all the animals down, including a dog called Dread.

  2. David Perez's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    If you are into this, yeah it's ok. if not, go watch paint dry.

  3. Monkey Flix's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    The narration is comically bad, and it repeats some of the photographic sequences way too long. Despite this, it's a fascinating documentary of this photographic pioneer.

  4. teresa romã's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    Porto Post/Doc: a must see for any cinephile. Incredible. Magnificent. A doc within a doc.

  5. brain goosebump's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

  6. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    A bit dryer than Los Angeles..., but it's hard to imagine a more analytically brilliant take on Muybridge.

  7. Papagena Robbins's rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    Redemptive and endlessly fascinating, Andersen and co-directors spent 10 years animating Muybridge's motion studies, bringing the figures to life in a way that the protocinematic figure was not able to in his career. It may appear dry and didactic at first, but stick with it for subtle essayistic insights along the way. Dean Stockwell narrates.

  8. Greg S.'s rating of the film Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer

    At barely an hour in length there's a lot to take in . Andersen's reflections include biographical insights to the sometimes obsessive nature of this work and film theory exploring the relationship between Muybride's technological advancements and his work's capacity to enlighten on an almost philosophical level. One of the best essay on film. Masterpiece.
