Stan Brakhage II

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 18, 2015

Brakhage’s spoken introduction is very poignant. It causes the viewer to secondarily revise the abstract images, which indeed seem to illustrate the text, just as he suggested. What would happen if we hadn’t have heard the spoken introduction? Brakhage, both teacher and filmmaker, will be comfortable with that result too.

Either way, in any case, his visual effects are most expertly and beautifully rendered.
