Meshes in the Afternoon (1943)

Dir. Maya Deren
18 minutes
7/10

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.
