Stan Brakhage!
    #2029651 - 10/21/03 07:41 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I highly recommend the films of Stan Brakhage. Brakhage was a pioneer experimental filmmaker; he did everything to his films, from scratching them, burning them, bleaching them, painting on them, and glueing things directly onto blank mylar film strips, to dazzling and often hypnotic effect. In addition, he shot footage of his family, including sex with his wife and the birth of his children.

Stan was on a mission to show people how to see.

General essay on Brakhage



You can purchase the Stan Brakhage anthology through various DVD vendors as well as Amazon.com

I have rips of a bunch of his films. Many of them are a little uncomfortable to watch though...

the ones I have seen have been completely silent. he'll hold a shot for a long time, just to make you uncomfortable. i'd only want to watch a couple of his films tripping, but they are all fairly excellent.

yeah, brakhage can sometimes be a bit freaky and disturbing. But usually, I find his work to be a soothing, visual-heaven.
