Essentially an extended art installation, Hollis Frampton's LEMON is a single extended take of a lemon using light to play off it like the cycles of the moon. Mesmerizing and strangely melancholy, the film features none of more avant-garde editing and camera trickery so prevalent in his early work, but is arguably the finest achievement of the first part of his career.
Lemon - My positive experience with “Sun Song” has inspired me to explore the avant-garde side of cinema more. This is a good place to start I think. Barebones cinema just like that previously mentioned one, making its subject one of the oldest in the movies: light and shadow. Proving there’s the kind of filmmaking genius that uses elaborate tracking shots and swooping cameras, but also the kind that films fruit.
