experimental film vs narrative film

I've noticed a few places lately people making a
distinction between experimental film and narrative

However surely many experimental films are quite
narrative too. Maya Deren and Kenneth Anger spring to
mind. Possibly even Stan Brakhage!

Strangely this very subject came up at the Rose Lowder
screening yesterday too which I was glad to see. "So
it isn't just me who is finding this odd!" I thought.

I've noticed it happening more and more tho.

Rose even went as far as to suggest it would be
possible to have experimental fiction films. I hadn't
thought of it in quite that way before, just that some
films were very narrative.

But do any of you really think there is a clear
seperation between the two or is it just something
people say.
