Back and Forth

<--->

Réalisé par Michael Snow
Canada, 1969
Avant-garde

Synopsis

Like his most famous film Wavelength, Michael Snow’s Back and Forth uses a specific formal/mechanical property of the cinematic apparatus (in this case, horizontal and vertical panning) to sever the link between the camera and what it depicts.

Avis des critiques

The effect is one of succumbing to the grip of the moment; compelled to follow it, we are unable to focus, to settle upon a given object or point within the field. . . . The notion of limitation is transposed from the gradual reduction of the size of the field to the gradual imposition of insistent directionality, intensified by the metronomic click, which seems sometimes to lead, sometimes to accompany, the action.
June 01, 1971
