It does such a terrific job of showing us what Deren was like that it makes even the notion of a biopic about her seem unnecessary, if not ridiculous.
Not only celebrates Deren's cinematic legacy but also reveals a gifted talent whose explosive temperament was at odds with the lyrical, dreamlike imagery she put on screen.
Intimidated by the words 'avant-garde film'? Then hand yourself over, without reservation, to the skills of documentarian Martina Kudlacek and her astonishingly accessible primer, In the Mirror of Maya Deren.
A long overdue documentary portrait of one of our most important avant-garde filmmakers.
It should please her admirers and, 40 years after her death, win her new ones.
Refreshingly free of postmodernist theorizing and gender-study cant.
Martina Kudlacek's engrossing film study does a service to the film world by reminding everyone that there are filmmakers who make films as art.
Better late than never, In the Mirror of Maya Deren reminds us of what a treasure Deren was and gives us just enough of a taste to make us want more.
An absolute must for those who think themselves students of film and for the serious documentary buff.
should be required viewing for any student of film
It's the included portions of Deren's films that are the best part of In the Mirror of Maya Deren.
