What it is: Experimental film

Music plays while we see people dancing and still scenes in silhouette and/or in reverse image.

I rather enjoy delving into some of these experimental films, although it must be said that many of them only qualify as fantastic by dint of their being decidedly non-realistic. However, I can understand others having no use for them or hating them. In this case, I’m willing to bet that some people find the weird repeating musical riff that fills the soundtrack of this one to be grating and unpleasant. They can be grateful that the movie is only two and a half minutes long, but even I have to admit that this one gets old at about the halfway mark, especially when I noticed that certain of the images keep repeating themselves. And in a movie this length, there’s really no reason to have the credits repeated twice. Still, that’s part of the adventure of exploring experimental films.
