Meshes in the Afternoon (1943)

Dir. Maya Deren
18 minutes

The score reflects more of my own enjoyment of the film more than the actual quality which would be higher. Grace and Penny would probably be interested in this.

Supposedly a classic avant-garde silent film. It really feels like a dream, and in that way the film reminded me of Eraserhead. This film is better. Even though the film is dream-like, it is more coherent; it feels like a poem with someone intentionally crafting the images. I really like the coherrence of the images, although I’m not sure about the meaning. It’s one of the more artistically successful avant-garde/art films I’ve seen.
