There are two good films on this disc, one about incontinental missiles stored in North Dakota, and the other is a film cleverly edited out of porn. The rest are like the majority of bad films I saw at art school, keeping that in mind the disc is still worth renting.

mostly amazing, though a few of the films bored me by jaimetout December 10, 2003 - 10:52 PM PST

i was pretty impressed with this disc in general, though it seems like like they started off with the best films right at the beginning and the level of quality went down from there. it picked up again at the end, however, with a pretty good documentary about dakotan missle silos. said documentary featured a voice-over that was highly reminiscent of Michael Moore's films, but the overall political outlook was slightly less partisan, and the treatment was a bit more poetic than Moore's stuff. Miranda July's Getting Stronger Every Day was a real highlight and almost worth the rental alone. several of the films left me pretty cold, especially the "found footage" material. i'm an experimental filmmaker myself, and i have some pretty strong feelings about (against) the whole appropriation thing, mostly because i find it to be pretty boring in the first place, and well past the point of being overdone, besides. Matt McCormick's The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal was pretty odious--the idea was good (municipally sanctioned spray paint graffiti cover-ups as a form of art which supplants another form of art), but the film was WAY too long. also, the voice-over was at once annoying and unnecessary (since anyone with two neurons to fire can see what's going on, but the voiceover spells everything out as if we are children). the voiceover also made some pretty stupid statements: graffiti removal is an artistic "movement" and it is "the natural progression of abstract expressionism." PLEASE...

I highly recommend the disc in general, but skip over The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal if you have 2 cents worth of brains in your head.
