Cut

USA, 1967 (MIFF 1970, American experiment)

Director: Christopher Parker

During the course of producing a film, an individual reflects upon himself and his relations with others, at the same time as being bemused by the tools of his trade.

A difficult abstract work, with no apparent plot or sequence, which talks elliptically of Greek myths and their significance to film makers .... The chaos is astonishingly well photographed and edited &ndash: and... displays a debt to the non-styles and non-goals of the cinematic Underground.
