I was chatting with a friend today and we started discussing the
words "radical" and "filmmaking" within the same sentence. Got me
thinking about a lot of films that would, for me, fit into such a
genre (for lack of a better word).
My dictionary describes genre as:
a category of artistic composition, as in music or literature,
characterized by similarities in form, style, or subject matter
Such a definition seems rather anti-radical to me, so I'd like to
toss out a call for recommendations of films that, to members of this
list, would be considered radical.
I'd rather not provide examples that have crossed my mind as I'd
prefer to receive suggestions based upon unmediated (unguided?) ideas
of what constitutes radical filmmaking.
If anyone has suggestions please send them along, on or off-list.
