Hi everyone,
It is written about Brakhage: 'He created often highly abstract films either totally devoid of narrative such as the colourful and kaleidoscopic 'Preludes' or with hints of unclear narrative, such as the unsettling and monochromatic 'Sirius Remembered' and 'The Dead'.
On the other hand P. Adams Sitney wrote about Markopoulos: 'the filmmaker most attracted to narrative of his generation and one of the most radical narrative film-makers in the world'.
As Markopoulos has narrative structure loose and abstract, does his narrative manner come in agreement or in contrast with Brakhage's one? How we could compare the two film-makers?
