Something Horizontal निर्देशक Blake Williams

समीक्षक के रिव्यू

When, soon after, a timeline is established via humorous intertitles, the film begins to open up, jumping back through previous images, locales, and even films, and then forward into rapidly moving shots from the window of a car. The 3D field of space, therefore, becomes just one of multiple channels for Williams’ geometric expression.

With its opening prelude of a man being taken away on a gurney before we get tumbling vision of this super-charged room, I couldn’t help but think of Dreyer giving us the radical point of view of a dead man in a coffin in Vampyr. The swarming room is followed by a twisting vortex up a flight of stairs and a surprising cut to footage from an old silent Kammerspiel, suggesting a slender but wrenchingly tortured tale of the mania, injury and swooning vision of a desperate soul.

There’s a sly humor at work here, since Williams has made another anaglyph 3D piece. Therefore, on a compositional level alone, things in the image are going to be layered atop other things. But more than this, the majority of Something Horizontal consists of rapid pulses of (relatively vertical) non-narrative imagery.
