    Working with fundamental forms (colour, light, shapes, flicker) Sharits creates a film in which the spaces between the frames are made invisible amidst the visual cacophony, the colour jungle before us.

    Sometimes the flashes of colour move at such incredible speeds that the image seemingly loses its colour and morphs into a glistening yet colourless beam of light, even though you’re still aware colour is present. 

    As with Stan Brakhage and ' Closed eye vision ' as he put it…

    Stan Brakhage’s cinema should be prescribed by doctors.

    I can’t explain how I feel because my eyes are full of tears and my ears are full of Bach and my heart is full of joy. 

    Best film ever made. Nothing else is getting that title for me. What’s gonna top it? Looking at my 2018 watchlist the only ones would maybe be Army Of Shadows, Landscape In The Mist, Eternity And A Day or L’Argent. And that’s just going of a hunch.

    If you know me you know this is my favourite movie. Or atleast 2nd. So to those who have heard me drone on about this then you can stop here but Mirror a sort of synecdoche for all of what makes cinema for me. Because I approach film in the same way I approach dreams because I believe in dreams as much as I do in film. Dreams I don’t think happen as a mere accident but rather great edifice…
