A pleasant ramble through little-known cinematic territory.
This friendly, colorful documentary from Pip Chodorov is not the last word on all the shapes, sizes and languages of experimental film, but rather an introduction brightened by a companionable enthusiasm and an apposite sense of community.
There are simply too many obvious condensations and omissions in the course of the meager 82-minute running time ...
Aspires to no less a feat of compression than surveying, in 80 minutes, 10 decades of the filmmaking practice that has variously been described as experimental, nonnarrative, underground, etc.
A worthy baptism for those unacquainted with the genre but less fulfilling, perhaps, for the pre-converted eager to experience more.
A playful and audacious homage documentary to the pioneering and economically hard-pressed avant-garde filmmakers from the silents to the present.
Breezy overview of classic cinematic avant garde will be best appreciated by established fans.
A survey of 90 years of abstract experimental film (mostly the kind where they scratch into or paint directly on the celluloid), from its Dadaist origins to its NYC heyday, with rare interviews and plentiful examples, including a few full-length shorts. A decent overview of an imposing subject, though aficionados will wonder about some of the important figures who are rushed over or omitted entirely (did Hollis Frampton sleep with the director's girlfriend or something?)
