"both high and low culture have produced masterpieces and works of mediocrity. it is our task to find beauty in unexpected places." — jahsonic (june, 2006), art & popular culture wiki

"i urge you: learn to look at ‘bad’ films, they are so often sublime." — adonis kyrou,
le surréalisme au cinéma (1953)


"a still is not a film. it lacks the dimensions of time and movement — indispensable components of film art — and represents only a small fraction of a single second of a given motion picture." — amos vogel, film as a subversive art (1974)

37 notes ubuweb: film & video:

UbuWeb is pleased to present hundreds of avant-garde films & videos for your viewing pleasure. However, it is important to us that you realize that what you will see is in no way comparable to the experience of seeing these gems as they were intended to be seen: in a dark room, on a large screen, with a good sound system and, most importantly, with a roomful of warm, like-minded bodies.  However, we realize that the real thing isn’t very easy to get to. Most of us don’t live anywhere near theatres that show this kind of fare and very few of us can afford the hefty rental fees, not to mention the cumbersome equipment, to show these films. Thankfully, there is the internet which allows you to get a whiff of these films regardless of your geographical location.  We realize that the films we are presenting are of poor quality. It’s not a bad thing; in fact, the best thing that can happen is that seeing a crummy shockwave file will make you want to make a trip to New York to the Anthology Film Archives or the Lux Cinema in London (or other places around the world showing similar fare). Next best case scenario will be that you will be enticed to purchase a high quality DVD from the noble folks trying to get these works out into the world. Believe me, they’re not doing it for the money.  Please support these filmmakers and their distributors by purchasing their films. Please support the presenters of these works by going to see them in theatres whenever you can.
