  1. darioscha's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Psicoanálisis y la empresa de hacer cine a partir de la re apropiación de la imagen, imágenes con resonancias plásticas que apuntan a la sensibilidad y la narrativa, un lugar donde la imagen sólo -sugiere- la sensación en lugar de mostrarla e ilustrarla.

  2. Crina Cătălina Bucur's rating of the film The Claustrum

    (3.5) Definitely interesting, with a very suitable ending quote - "How can one take delight in the world unless one flees to it for refuge?" (Franz Kafka)

  4. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Like the best filmmakers working with found footage, Rosenblatt causes you to apprehend familiar images with the vertigo of unsettling new insights; not things you can easily explain, but that you feel in your stomach, under your skin, cutting through what Deleuze calls the cliche of images; cliches because, having seen the same images so many times presented the same way, we think we've seen all they have to offer.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Une étonnante curiosité !

  7. eberhard's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Beautiful poetry. Couldn't uncover her texts though.

  8. dionysus67's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Don't know if this is Rosenblatt's best but he is certainly gifted in how his images cohere in those shorts which enable him to build some sort of narrative, albeit ellipitical. The imagery from nature, society and the cosmos is perfecrly tuned to the inner mental lanscape of the three women and the dialectic of refuge/jail works superbly in terms of a Foucauldian critique of normality. Luminous in the claustrum!

  9. Superfrog's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Love the material and the format!

  10. Peter Walsh's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Rosenblatt pushing at the boundaries he's already established with found footage and archive. Voice, rhythm and hypnotic visuals never quite click, even if they still cling in the memory long after viewing.

  11. Juan Javier's rating of the film The Claustrum

  12. dreamseed's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Existential despair dealt with as a visceral, sensual escapade. A perfect conclusion to his ouvre: An engaging, tireless, repetitive practise of meaning-making. Humans can live without anything but meaning. His films have been like that bag of chips, consume all or none at all. That in itself is a mark of craftsmanship and a compelling recipe. An exquisite gleaner and economizer too. This film is written very well.

  13. nica's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Trying to tap into certain subjects just don't fare well with found footage collages, unfortunately. That is the case for this particular short. I personally find Jay Rosenblatt's method of filmmaking working best when he's having fun and playing with ideas or reflecting on his life.

    Aside from the poignant message, scientists later discover the claustrum’s role in acting as an on-off switch for consciousness and in binding perceptions as a cohesive whole.

  15. guillermo's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Freudian clinical cases. JR films are deeply concerned with suffering. He explores what that means and how to reduce it. It makes you think through images, beautiful frames, but something that seems trivial often emerges. Don't know what it is, but it might be related to the density of such topics.

  16. captainfez's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Rosenblatt films always remind me of the stuff created by that online Artist's Statement Generator. This one's no different.

  17. Frank ViSo's rating of the film The Claustrum

  18. Korial's rating of the film The Claustrum

    Rosenblatt's shorts are brief, poignant, visual essays. A deus ex machina, a demiurge, a conjurer, or simply a humble gleaner.
