Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Meshes of the Afternoon

If it wasn't for the fragmented and surreal aesthetic, I don't think this film has an abundant amount to say on the nature of relationships and suicide, or whatever it is trying to say, as that is rather subjective. But, it's not fully formed due to this indirectness, anyhow. Yet, its unhinged photography, jagged editing, and the light and dark shadow play of the lighting keep this early avant-garde film engaging.
