    Like being a child again.

  2. MLandry's rating of the film Glimpse of the Garden

    The sound design and space together are very whimsical. This film really is an extension of painting. This is really lovely and perfectly paced, you really get just a moment in this garden.

  4. PolarisDiB's rating of the film Glimpse of the Garden

    Most movies of this sort take it slow and delight in the subtle movement of still objects and lightplay/color over it. Marie Menken uses some expert graphic matching and rushes along in cinematography and editing, keeping a beat with the birdsong soundtrack. Ultimately the movie ends up feeling something like the experience from a bird's perspective, though from a rote standpoint it is glimpses, not views, of garden.
