By Night with Torch and Spear

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 29, 2015

Modernist? Eccentric? Looney? As we’ve seen (Rose Hobart, q.v.) all those descriptors are pretty apt for this particular head-scratchingly trailblazing filmmaker. Very sharp images! The backward titles are bratty, but also interestingly disorienting. Cornell’s┬áprovocative combination of industrial and anthropological does generate something of mystery and of menace.
