Heed the Warning!

Hollis Frampton opened a great many of his films, which one could define as exhaustingly avant-garde, with the above image, alluding to the basic operation of cinema just before he's about to exploit it. Potential viewers would be well-advised to do either that, or the total opposite, and give yourself over entirely. The middle ground may spell trouble.

In a recent interview, which I sadly cannot find, coinciding with the release of his latest (and last) film, The Turin Horse, Bela Tarr was asked if he sees his films as "difficult." In his typical terse manner, he replied something along the lines of, "you're just sitting there, watching the movie. What is so difficult?"

Twenty-four of Frampton's films are collection in the magnificent A Hollis Frampton Odyssey, which I wrote about for Battleship Pretension.
