The Dark Tower

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 18, 2015

I’m viewing and writing in circles here. The Dark Tower gives us more fabulously vivid colour. The explanation for it makes sense, as and if Brakhage says so. But I’m wondering if these elaborations can’t, don’t sometimes close things down, inhibit the viewer from seeking more, or different. Maybe, sometimes, it’s better if we see and connect for ourselves. As for what Brakhage says, or his films themselves, in the end they are basically Andrei Tarkovsky personal, and often Tarkovsky impenetrable.
