  • Dale Wittig's rating of the film Scotch Tape

    Ken Jacobs, Jerry Sims and Reese Haire dance for Jack's dancing camera in the rubble that would soon be Lincoln Center. There's lots of twisted rebar, cement chunks and dust. You probably have to see it projected on a screen to be dazzled, but it is genuinely dazzling, however short. It makes a good companion film for Jacobs' Little Cobra Dance (Jack dancing on a fire escape and in an alley of the same era in B&W.)
