Stan Brakhage II

film 10 of 27

The Stars are Beautiful

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 18, 2015

Some of the creation myths that Brakhage made up are interesting, and the idea of making up your own creation myths is very interesting. Without the introduction on the Criterion disc, it is unclear how or whether the images, which seem more dim and grainy and unframed than had to have been necessary, actually relate to those narrated myths. The universe, juxtaposed with your family I would think. Makes sense, but doesn’t land.
