‘Rameau’s Nephew’ by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen

3.1
7.0/10 IMDB

Described (rather cheekily) by director Michael Snow as a musical comedy, this deft probing of sound/image relationships is one of his wittiest, most entertaining and philosophically stimulating films. In his words, the film “derives its form and the nature of its possible effects from its being built from the inside, as it were, with the actual units of such a film, i.e. the frame and the recorded syllable. Thus its ‘dramatic’ element derives not only from a representation of what may involve us generally in life but from considerations of the nature of recorded speech in relation to moving light-images of people.’”

Starring: Kevin Wenzel, Munro Ferguson, Jim Murphy, Jonas Mekas, Harry Gantt, Joyce Wieland, Barry Gerson, Helene Kaplan, Bob Cowan, Ping Chong ..
