Audience Reviews for Walden - Diaries Notes and Sketches

Assembled from 4 years of footage Mekas shot, the film documents episodes from Meka's life including attending weddings, filmmaking excursions , meeting with other filmmakers such as Brakhage, Dreyer, Warhol, etc. In the poetic tradition Mekas discovers his own artistic voice through this process of recording and retrospection of his quotidian life. The handheld footage is very jittery with tons of rapid cutting as well as double exposures which looks amazing in the part called Notes on a Circus, originally intended as a tribute to Kenneth Anger.
