Wavelength

Posted by martinteller on September 3, 2009

Having suffered through La Region Centrale, I was really dreading this.  I had my witty, scathing review already written in my head, involving Michael Snow boring people at parties with his ideas for an experimental film about a 45-minute zoom shot.  But I actually liked this one.  It’s a lot more than just a zoom shot, there’s several unexpected surprises.  The slow, determined movement of the camera and the incessant, rising electronic drone on the soundtrack create a sense of impending doom, and even more so when the rhythms get falter or get thrown off.  Not for everyone, but I would totally watch this again.  Rating: 7
