I hope Peter Tscherkassky was subconsciously influenced by 'Rose Hobart' when he was making 'The Exquisite Corpus'. Or consciously. Either way it takes nothing from Tscherkassky and gives Cornell the ineffable awe he deserves. We are slaves to images as much as we are liberated by them. And sometimes, like now, I don't care. Even the second-hand crush on Hobart feels right, as much a crush on Cornell and film. 1936!
I don't know. Vellaem. I liked it. It moves like a dream moves. It took a pieces from a movie that was probably cheesy, poorly acted, etc. And he took these pieces and created a real sense of mystery and movement. Even if there was no linear storyline, I was intrigued by the emotions of Rose the whole time. Very cool.
