  1. Frank ViSo's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

  2. kartina obskura's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    (2,5) like when someone had many plastic surgeries and is kinda pretty but in a very boring way

  3. m00njaguar's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Like his other films that I've seen here on MUBI, this one is a meditative exploration of place and time. His style is painfully slow while also being dynamic, due to his interesting use of time lapse. This director works like a DJ, playing with his visual & sound elements, remixing, speeding Up & slowing down his materials.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Sound design is quite sublime.

  5. Nathan Hopkins's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Rappmund's films defy easy classification. In many ways, they are like moving paintings with sound more than what might typically be thought of as a film. They are beautiful but demand great patience from their viewer to appreciate their responsive style. The lack of a unifying theme made me like this less than Psychohydrography, but its framing of death and gorgeous final shot of the sunrise/set makes it worthwhile.

  6. Lu_na's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Unnatural motion graphics out the film sometimes. Wonderful color and audio pickup.

  7. BernardoLopes's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Has a Mecas's feeling about it. Beautiful photography and well established atmospherically. Nevertheless, some "fractions" are too vulgar.

  8. Théo's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    La preuve que l'on peut, par l'image, exprimer des idées, des émotions, établir des liens esthétiques, graphiques, sensoriels. Une bande-son minimaliste, pas d'acteurs, mais un film éclairé et magnifiquement sculpté, comme un poème visuel.

  9. naokoken's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Beautiful movie. Really enjoyed the parts that were like a moving painting. Also liked the at-times disjoint nature. The field recordings always seemed to be of stuff happening just off-screen which gave the feeling of being completely enveloped.

  10. Kim Nyman's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

  11. T Mills's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    The landscapes are beautiful of course but somehow at first they are more than that and then slowly the film becomes more of a postcard.

  12. Edward Morris's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

  13. Steven Nuttall's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    A mesmerising, hypnogogic meditation on the transient and immovable, with a crystalline detail that magnifies reality and creates an eerie feeling of being somehow attendant in the complete absence of human presence.

  14. Superfrog's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Nice animated slideshow, does not come with pretension of delivering much, and does just this. If you have lenses with horrible bokeh, I would suggest closing the iris though.

  15. kopfkompass's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

  16. Morten Halskov Jensen's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Set den 23. februar. Meditativ film, eller en række billeder, scener fra Arkansas. Inspirerende i den forstand at man får lyst til selv at lave film, billeder og lyd.

  17. Jean-Go's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Vulgar Fractions, qui doit sans doute plus se voir comme une oeuvre de plasticien et de photographe qu'un court métrage conventionnel a le mérite d'offrir une belle tension sur la beauté absurde des frontières. Dommage toutefois, et c'est là que le cinéma peine à égaler la poésie, ces fractions mettent du temps à montrer plus que ce qu'elles montrent physiquement. 3.5/5

  18. Sprungler's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Surprising beauty in unfamiliar spaces, meaningless nature and vestiges of human presence. American aesthetic legacy in a 30 minutes film.

  19. David R Williams's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Really 2.5. I don't know. Maybe Rappmund shot his load with "Psychohydrography" - that I found hypnotic. This...the visuals were not particularly interesting and the sound was merely grating.

  20. raggiodisole's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    erm, its nice and relaxing, and it shows a love of(and requirement for) patience, but its closer to a video installation than a film

  21. TheOldCoach's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    A wonderful video and sound essay. I suspect the artist (suits better than director) just loves this country. The 20 odd minutes pass quickly but you should watch preferably with no noise disturbance!

  22. Adam GR's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    A good piece of Americana. Sensory ethnography, transportive memory, digital painting à la Rothko indeed. Deer!

  23. DrFirestone's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    This film, or perhaps a slideshow, left me rather disappointed, most likely because I expected something deeper... Some of the scenery is indeed beautiful, even inspiring, but it's mixed with many less impressive shots unfortunately. Could it be a land surveyor's dream? ;)

  24. muse_x's rating of the film Vulgar Fractions

    Of the three films I liked this one best. Aa if the director's found his stride–at last.
