Bizarre, whimsical, frustrating, inelegant, funny, political, smart, completely disorganized in an intentional way, an unsatisfying mixture of 16mm footage from the 70s with crappy video from the present (and mismatched in an intentionally unsatisfying way). I both loved it and was bored. But Kidlat Tahimik is one of my heroes. Incomprehensible and unwatchable? Perhaps. Deliriously idiosyncratic? Yeah. Like any other movie I've ever seen? Definitely not. Everyone should be taking chances like this. Precisely so that they can fail this fascinatingly -- so much more beautifully than most other directors' successes.
