  1. msmichel's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Would have more impact on a tape loop in a museum installation than as cinematic experience. Interesting concept overdone in a 40 minute form.

  2. dAlton Anthony's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Not sure what barnyard animals and machine tool noises have to do with the male gaze's fascination with the female form over the millennia. Perhaps if Lebel had slowed things down so that we could take in each artifact? Maybe a Bill Viola-esque sound-track? Anyway, this strikes me as ill-conceived and I really didn't get much from it to be honest.

  3. Jason's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Entre chien et loup. The eternal intermezzo. Morphing is about becoming, plasticity, and ontological instability. Everything was just something else and is about to be something else entirely. Think Heraclitus. Flickering flames. Here we have the eternal intermezzo as sensory bombardment. And as a poetics of the female form set against an abyssal black. There is also, it so happens, absolutely stunning music here.

  4. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    The male gaze meets morphing. A very good excuse to show vintage pornography in slideshow form. The video transitions at the end of each chapter need some work. Actually, lot of work.

  5. panagiotatos's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    interesting but its duration could be cut to half.

  6. Lorena Saucedo's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Deification or objectification of the female body? Both? This film: critical or cynical? Maybe both too. Many of these images bear the imprint of a male gaze and the morphing of one image into another suggests touching, hand-molding. The film exposes thus the male artist's eye and hand as sources of the construction of female beauty associated with erotic love throughout history (mainly in Western art and media).

  7. G. Elósegui's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Aburrido a más no poder. He visto power points en facebook mejor hechos. ¿Apología de Venus? por favor, se agota a los dos minutos.

  8. Jacquel Soriano's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Es un estimulante y controversial cortometraje de la Diosa a través de diferentes culturas, esculturas, pinturas y sonidos (en su primer capítulo I) el resto se los dejo a su gusto e interpretación; bajo la dirección del artista #JeanJacquesLebel digno de disfrutarse sin interrupciones. #Venus #Corto

  9. enmarienbad's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Yes, this film makes an silly point: the sexploitation of robots, their reduction to penises, the inherent aggression in a lot of our culture's iconographic traditions. And the morphing is a good cinematic tool to show how women look like sausages - but the thing is simply too short to hold the viewer's attention. A 120-miunte-expansion would be the thing.

  10. Robert Peters-Gehrke's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Yes, this film makes an important point: the exploitation of women, their reduction to bodies, the inherent aggression in a lot of our culture's iconographic traditions. And the morphing is a good cinematic tool to show how women get torn apart by expectations of the male glance - but the thing is simply too long to hold the viewer's attention. A 10-miunte-condensation would be the thing.

    Interesante. Sin embargo 40 minutos pueden resultar pesados para verse seguido.

    el género femenino visto desde todos los ángulos.

  14. Harrywolf Krstl's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

  15. Nelson Gómez's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Un texto visual. Una apologia a Venus. Genial el efecto de morpho y las lecturas que se hacen entre cada capitulo.

  16. Sin título.'s rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Mujer y madre; explotación de género y el objeto sexual cosificado produciendo sentimientos duales de celebración y sufrimiento. Definitivamente es material para apreciarse en una instalación y no en la sala de TV.

  17. Laetitia's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus

    Maybe you have to be on drugs to enjoy 40 minutes of this.

  18. vigabrielo's rating of the film Les avatars de Vénus
