Spiral Jetty ★★★

form started to seem full of potential just as i started to worry it was overly affected/restrictive. works more as a kind of painter's study than as a finished work (and one of the film's most gestures, the carefully reconstituted "primary source" texts and many lines of too fast to catch detail, seems more like nice parlor trick than anything else), but that's a fascinating and undervalued for in and of itself.
