Film Review by Dean Duncan May 26, 2015

This is an infinitely great, infinitely revisitable idea. Take a plain, precious, unappreciated household object or nearby thing, and film it right to the ground. The Eames move quite quickly through the bread making process itself, concentrating instead on the vast range of breadness, and on its photographic qualities. Which are considerable. It’s a great idea, but these are early days. Bread might be a tad unfocused, or maybe underconceptualized. Great shots, mind—lateral right to left track, bread fore mid and back, and miscellaneous objects interplaced (milk, a bowl of flowers, fruit, wine)—lovely juxtapositions. But I’m not sure I have the structural plan of the thing. The pigeon conclusion is humourously fanciful, or a head-scratcher.
