Cari, youıre out of line.
The whole experimental film world is made up of artistsı who dare to pick
up a camera. To use that attack on Fred, after your other one, is really
just attacking with a blunt knife. No oneıs hurt very badly -- you just end
up messy and exhausted. And those around as witnesses just think, oh, gross.
After the pleasant surprise of hearing that Martin made a film, it is a
disappointment to hear that it may not be any good (which even her own
descriptions may point to). Still, Iıd probably search it out, because it is
AGNES MARTIN, which is a name that, frankly, rings like BRAKHAGE in many a
fine circle (and even amongst the squares). And when I watch it, Iıll
probably feel like I did just lose an hour to a mediocre film... Unless
anyone else has an opinion?
Also, two nice films on plumbing... Nicky Hamlynıs WHITE LIGHT and WATER
Any other plumbing films? I know a good plumber filmmaker!
