Audience Reviews for Meshes of the Afternoon

  • Jun 04, 2013
    The creation of such haunting and nightmarish phenomenon from one of the legendary poetesses of cinema had its reminiscence in surrealism more than in poetry itself. The "key" to reflection and self-discovery comes from within, not from external wills, and so begins the infinite loop of thoughts and epiphanies but nothing is ever the same. There is always some element that changes the entire package. Every second is unique; present is defined as that indivisible particle that unites nothingness with the future, which still isn't the "to be", whereas the past is only in memories, intimidation, water reflections, broken mirrors... 100/100

    A woman sees a figure walking around a corner on a garden path, fumbles her key when trying to enter her apartment, sees a knife fall out of the loaf of bread it was lodged in, and then goes upstairs and takes a nap; she has a series of recurring dreams where these incidents and objects repeat themselves in new combinations, building up to a nightmarish conclusion. This mysterious and poetic riddle without a solution becomes more fascinating with each subsequent viewing.

    This is pretty good for an experimental film, but I still didn't like it.

    There was a time in cable television where I got to watch experimental films from Filipino filmmakers, it is called "Alternative Cinema". That was my elementary days, and I remember being frightened by some of the works, and watching "Meshes of the Afternoon", it again evoked that kind of feeling. It was by no means a horror film, but it was countless times scarier than legitimate fright pictures, not because of boogeymen and killers, but because of the eerie aura of the whole film that does not just dare to scare physically, but mainly to touch the raw nerves of the subconscious. If the idea in "Paprika" will be true, then documented dreams of the disturbed will look something like this film, a brainchild by husband-wife Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid(Deren got the accolades more, but it was reported that the whole film was largely Hammid's idea).
