Avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage has labelled his 1963 film Dog Star Man his "cosmological epic." This virtually indescribable film was released in a prelude and four parts. These were not titled but dated instead: Prelude, 1962; Part One, 1963; Part Two 1964 and so forth. While toiling on this project, Brakhage also managed to finish The Art of Vision, derived from Dog Star Man leftovers, and wrote the script for Metaphors of Vision.

Whatever one thinks, and however much the film may seem dated now in relation to Brakhage's subsequent output, it is an achievement to be reckoned with.
Clearly, Brakhage's film has had a tremendous impact on both the avant-garde film movement and mainstream cinema, but uneasy rests the crown of a self-important classic.
