Astonishing visual imagination by brakhage April 1, 2005 - 4:55 AM PST

Very clever, humorous, and fantastic (as in fantasy) filmmaking - I'd have to say this guy is a genius. I have no idea how most of this was accomplished, despite the rough edges sometimes showing; these were done before the high-end video production techniques we now take for granted existed. Gorgeous stuff, and deeply human. In Polish with no subtitles, but it's not really necessary to enjoy the films.

Wait a minute... HOW DID HE DO THAT? by jaimetout April 16, 2004 - 3:24 PM PDT

These films prove that visual effects can, in fact, be used well if not motivated entirely by the capitalistic desire to fill auditorium seats at the expense of all else (neural activity included). Films like the recent additions to the STAR WARS saga and JURASSIC PARK seem to exist only in order that a few rich white men can get even richer by playing video games. Rybczynski's films, by contrast, use homespun visual effects like moving image mattes (and others that are completely unidentifiable) to explore the ways in which we think about the spaces modern man occupies. Think of them as something akin to "human nature films"--they depict and dissect given notions regarding the fractured and subjective nature of human ecology. Time and again, you'll find yourself wondering how a particular effect was achieved. In the end, however, the films are about so much more than that. Unlike Hollywood's effects-laden extravaganzas, there's a POINT behind the effects.
