Nearly all of Brakhage's films convey an astonishing blend of abstraction and representation, a hypnotic flow of pure cinema, an orgasmic discovery of the possibilities of the camera and editing technique, a hungry sensuality. [Blu-ray]
I think these Brakhage films are necessary for those who take their cinema seriously.
Brakhage was a dyed-in-the-wool advocate of the use of film for other than narrative purposes, and the body of work he left behind is the real thing: true-blue experiment.
This anthology, much like an exhibit of confident and periodically shocking artworks, will speak volumes to viewers.
'Filmmaker' is a misrepresentative title, here, as Brakhage only marginally honors the gamut of filmmaking.
