Dog Star Man
Directed by Stan Brakhage
This is kind of a weird landmark for me. This is the last movie that one of my favorite 1001 bloggers, Francisco Silva, reviewed before he stopped blogging. Ah, the eternal question. What happens to a blogger when there are no more posts? Anyway, he was the only other 1001 blogger that I have seen who reviewed these movies chronologically. If anyone knows of any other 1001 film blog that goes in order, could you please drop me a comment? Actually, I am open to reading any 1001 blog but it would be interesting to find a kindred spirit. Moving on!
Now, I only watched Part 1 of this disaster because that is all The Book required of me and probably all that I could have stood. This is a completely silent movie (although a lot of YouTubers added music which I silenced to get the full effect). It has no plot and is pretty much a smorgasbord of images that would stay on the screen for two seconds. It is a good thing I am not prone to seizures.
I do not like experimental films and probably never will so there is not too much to say about this one. I imagine the result might have been different if I had been on drugs, but I didn't have any weed on me (not that I ever have drugs on me…ahem…ahem).
Footage was included in the film The Art of Vision, which dissects and explains the movie.
