Dog Star Man Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Avant-garde filmmaker [[Performer~P82773~Stan Brakhage~stanbrakhage]] has labelled his 1963 film Dog Star Man his "cosmological epic." This virtually indescribable film was released in a prelude and four parts. These were not titled but dated instead: [[Feature~V80832~Prelude, 1962~prelude]]; [[Feature~V37339~Part One, 1963~partyparty]]; [[Feature~V152451~Part Two 1964~twotars]] and so forth. While toiling on this project, Brakhage also managed to finish The Art of Vision, derived from Dog Star Man leftovers, and wrote the script for [[Feature~V64673~Metaphors of Vision~metaphorsoftransformation]]. If you're looking for a plot, you've come to the wrong filmmaker. If you're looking for a fascinating mosaic of images combined to "interpret" the creation of the universe, then Dog Star Man will be right up your alley. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
