  • Inland Empire

    Inland Empire

    ★★★★★

    See underneath, the veiled reality: beyond the stories, the surfaces, the dream -
    a hole in it reveals a surface made of the same veil, but starts a new dream.

    Being both bunny and rabbit, we wear a scream-faced smile,
    living a thousand lives, and they all are of a suffering so blue.

    The underneath of underneaths, it is death eternal,
    this world is blood: a yearning unceasing that is red.

    Escape the loop of horror, embrace an identity so fluid,
    no more blue tomorrows, surf the wave of music so sweet.

  • Trouble Every Day

    Trouble Every Day

    love every day
    seeking it
    in the other
    beastly need
    from the other
    be my beast

    nervous system study
    got yourself to blame
    make it go away
    spread it around

    raging inside
    silent scream
    bite a nail
    pull a hair
    steal a thing
    give me cigarette

    pain, confusion, libido
    worsening conditions
    in the forest of the brain
    fight zone's broadening

    brutal dreamer,
    meet beast dreamer -
    devour

    dreamer,
    meet beast -
    devour

    beast,
    meet beast -
    got a light?

    shame, where are you?

    don't share a ring
    share your blood
    pass it on
    let's be sick together

    keeps coming back
    trouble every day

  • Idizwadidiz

    Idizwadidiz

    ★★★½

    What 'Idizwadidiz' is is the treachery of images, the deceptive nature of visual perception, with many evocative transitions and juxtapositions. Complex images are reduced to a simple shape and color not unlike how the brain falsely morphs infinitely rich visual information into easily comprehensible shapes and colors and motions. The film also explores the opposite case of reading familiar and emotionally resonant conceptions into little more than basic geometric shapes and monochrome colors.

    The first section especially reminded me of…

  • Brutal Ardour

    Brutal Ardour

    ★★★★½

    'Brutal Ardour' is difficult to describe, but I'll try. It's an avant-garde film with structural film elements. The images are very elusive (low-resolution, high-contrast, it's in color but might as well be in b&w, or rather in sepia). You can sense the film running through the projector, it generally runs on a very low frame rate (like about 5 fps), making it actually less about the content of the images and more about the film material.

    More important was the…
