  1. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Light Is Calling

    that one time i feel his decayed image, old-film footage and music altogether worked

  2. Juan D.'s rating of the film Light Is Calling

  3. Renton47's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    This one's very pretty and is probably the strongest example of a connection between the work of Morrison and William Basinski. How wrong I was to initially have misgivings of the use of Gordon's music in Morrison's films, their relationship continues to improve. This feels like a doomed love story where the lovers are literally divided by the weight of history, yet in rotting celluloid they briefly transcend.

  4. Slow Immersion's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    Probably one of the few interesting films he made. The problem with Morrison is that he the stock footage he uses to begin with is usually terribly uninteresting, and even though his techniques with the medium are admirable, they never seem to add much. This is one of the few works where his manipulations work.

  5. Videograms's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    Enjoyed it more than Decasia, sometimes I wonder if this is what Narcissus saw when he looked into the water...

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    This might have been made by taking a print of The Bells, 1926, by James Young and putting it in an oven preheated to 475 degrees for about 90 seconds. But Morrison is a professional, don't try this at home, especially not with a nitrate print. Highly recommended if you like intentionally damaged/burnt silent films.

  7. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Light Is Calling

  8. Miggy Angel's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    yearn all you want, she won't stay. a love story, no?

  9. filmcapsule's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    Saw this comment on YouTube: "Memory, like old celluloid, is destined to decay, and as we look back in time we find we have emerged from a dream."

  10. Clayton's rating of the film Light Is Calling

  11. adrianmendizabal's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    The plasticity of the image and the thought, is this cinema?

  12. Weaving Wave's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    a bit over-conscious of itself, producing that feeling of being done, otherwise very interesting.

  13. Max Slobodin's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    this is the 5th dimension impinging on known reality... a phantasmagorie of vibrations within the soul and without.... the potency of Kandinsky's inner necessity melded with Shelley's wrecked poetry fused with Rilke's battle with the seraphim of death

  14. Joriah Goad's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    Flashing/slashing birth; divine kaleidoscope orgasm: enter through fragmentations of bliss.

  15. Glemaud's rating of the film Light Is Calling

    Encapsulating. Enrapturing. Enamoring. Just goddamn beautiful.
