I don't think a filmmaker need be "self-absorbed or clueless" to write
a description that may seem "opaque" for identification purposes. A
subjective description of what one is doing with the work is perfectly
reasonable, especially for experimental work. But, for identification
purposes, one would need a very objective description, techniques,
palette, identifiable subjects, etc., to be certain. Unless an
objective description is specifically requested, a subjective one is
not out of line.
