My newest review is up on Stagebuddy.com! See below for an excerpt, and read the article in its entirety here.
The incredible thing about film is that it gives a glimpse into the literal perspective of someone else. This is obvious, but also goes double for experimental film. Without the rules of traditional filmmaking (plot, character, et cetera), and only constrained by the boundaries of the technical tools they are using, the opportunities for expression are endless and, perhaps, more exact. Anthology Film Archives has a penchant for paying tribute to film and the filmmaker, making sure that the playback and soundtrack are as authentic to the makers vision as possible. Clouded Visions: The Films of Yo Ota was no different. Josh Guilford and Tomonari Nishikawa, working with Ota himself, made sure that this screening was a beautiful and authentic embodiment of his work.
