What are people saying?

  • Slow Immersion's rating of the film Variations

    Dorsky may have created the most perfect film form I have ever seen; elements of abstraction, the gentle flow of life (you can tell Dorsky admires narrative cinema, and depicts people/life beautifully), documentary, and the most gentle and sensual use of light you will ever see. I know he is so against his works being on Blu-ray, but to be able to watch his films over and over, alone at home, would still be something
