This is the ecstatic essence/expression of the universe, that we all know, even if we don't all know that we know. This is the shit Rumi wrote about (& that no one but poets can put into anything so limiting as words) Resists representation; no signifier/signified. Dance, maybe; but that's just another kind of poetry.. Almost makes it possible to believe for a sec that some 'consciousness shift' really could save us!
Film as art and a physical medium explored in its bare, most basic form. A mysterious, hypnotic trance - I felt like I was dreaming about a wilderness somewhere in Africa. All the elements - the visuals and music are perfectly balanced and synchronised. An absolute legend and experimental cinema at its finest.
3.5 ⁞ Choosing this rhythmic based music makes a perfect fit, allowing a sort of hypnotic feeling or trip. The apparent simple technique of scratching the film comes with great effect, resulting in shapes and movement that are, visually, very captivating. Personally, I think I would try to find some space for a more specific intention or motivation at some point in the film. Still great as a pure experimental work.
I like that we have the odd short film - I don't see that many usually and it also gives me a chance to catch up! Love this and it works well to jazz. As a kiwi I should plump for this being described as a New Zealand film (but shan't argue). His sculptures are great as well. A true NZ icon.
Diese sehr einfachen Klänge rufen in mir eine Stimmung hervor, die ich sonst nur vom Capoeira kenne und die darin besteht, dass ich instinktiv den Takt der Musik in eine ruhige Bewegung umsetze. Dies im Kontrast zu den hektisch tanzenden Linien erzeugt ein Spannungsfeld aus An- und Entspannung, sodass sich eine Art Trance einstellt. Erstaunlich, wie wenig es für einen guten Film braucht.
