Post TH3 3XP3R1M3NT@L F1LM$ THR3@D

I don't have anything to say at the present moment but I feel like we need a repository for thoughts about the movies that no one really engages in discussion about anywhere else.

I saw Werner Nekes' Makimono which will keep me alive for a little while yet. Thrilling and visceral and I'm pretty sure it actually gave me a seizure? My neck started paining sharply and my right side went into spasm, but it might have been my scapula sprain from a few weeks ago.

would you say it's... experimental?

I love Brakhage. If you want to start small go for Window Water Baby Moving if you can handle seeing infants crowning, Mothlight etc, Anticipation of the Night, Cat's Cradle blahblahblah. I haven't seen a huge amount - haven't tackled Dog Star Man yet, for one, but this year I've only been watching experimentals 30mins + so that I can put them in my film log (where I don't count shorts because I'm retarded).

His Pittsburgh trilogy would be my next step, although i haven't actually been able to find Eyes anywhere. Or, just watch The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes which is a religious experience and easily one of the greatest, most stirring and thought-provoking things I've seen. It's like witnessing the afterlife.

Doesn't sound like any seizure I've ever had or seen.

I recently watched all the shorts by Toshio Matsumoto I hadn't seen beforehand. They were rad, especially the most abstract ones based on color. There's this totally fascinating cyber-Zen to all of his works, like Kûkai reinterpreted through 80s computers.

Su Friedrich's Sink or Swim is about the director's childhood and relationship with her absent, somewhat abusive scholar father who (quite sickeningly) almost systematically destroys their connection and then writes poetry about it. This is essayed in 26 'short stories', delivered in soliloquy by a young girl. The stories, not all of which actually are such, are titled with phrases and words representing each letter of the alphabet, told in reverse, and each story is accompanied by moving imagery, some dramatically staged, most documentary. The reverse-alphabet pattern seems to span the girl's life chronologically from conception to adulthood, as well. This is truly pretty brilliant, incredibly wrenching, very delicately done, very feminine (not as a result of the delicacy) if that makes sense - if there's some theoretical essence of a woman's hand as a filmmaker it is completely tangible here. Friedrich's engagement with the material is palpable and the whole thing is incredibly moving and often quite shocking in both its candour and the responses it provokes. Truly, truly, truly recommended. She made a bunch of other films in this kind of length wheelhouse (45-60 minutes).

Other great ones I saw recently - Tsai's Journey to the West, Nekes' Makimono, both of which I guess I can write about later.
