George Méliès

film 22 of 70

An Impossible Balancing Feat

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 17, 2015

The auteur, front and centre, as before and often. This time he varies his multi-exposure, multi-Méliès bit by incorporating his human fly trick. It’s just a stunt, but always a fun one, and featuring a striking technological wrinkle. Plus, he just looks so exceptionally graceful and attractive when he throws those clothes up, and they just magically fall upon him.
