  • Robert Orlowski's rating of the film Water Motor

    Equally problematic as it is brilliant, as the film's comparison between 24fps and 48fps draws to attention to one of the critical aspects of dance, the viewers rendering of movement. The later half of the film, opening the eye to the unrecognized subtleties and vibrations of movement, an overwhelming comprehension. Then for us only to mourn the loss of the original energy and rhythm so integral to the piece.
