Immediate thing that comes to mind is Michael Snow's <-->, though this doesn't really aim to be funny, nor is it really about movement as much as it is about abstraction. The soundtrack is for the most part a relatively unwavering drone and it's not terribly pleasant, which I consider a great strategic move as the film's middle section—which is filled with horizontal panning—grants the sense of a constant searching, of Nekes really trying to home in on something. The bits of found-sound shuffling and chimes that appear in the mix bolster that sense of seeking out beauty in nature and the everyday. As with any great piece of longform drone, you warm up to it; it subsumes you. And in Makimono's final stretch, it feels like Nekes has found what he's looking for: landscapes distilled into gold-browns and turquoise. Gorgeous.
