try Sergei Esinstein's October or any of his earlier works or any of the "sky" from early Russian films. they are VERY experimental and i'm sure there are books written on exploring them... but it could get boring researching it =). twas boring watching propaganda.

well ' Blue Velvet' is not exactly experimental anymore i think . he's just doing the same and the same all over. but hey if you're a fan of david lynch i think you'll like it in a personal way ,and if you are taking a movie of him better to take eraserhead.

btw distant voices still lives will blow you away, also try to see ' in the mood for love '

well i said to see it for personal reasons and if you had to choose one i'd choose eraserhead because blue velvet is more famous and more watchable and less experimental because its all the same in lynche's movies. eraserhead started it all and blue velvet is merely a stilistic follow up.well if you need anymore help just say so

p.s here are some more films i think that are ''experimental''

-coffee and cigarettes from jim jarmush
-dead men also from jim jarmush
-short cuts from robert altman
and many more but for the moment i cant remember them

I think it's funny how anything non Hollywood is considered "experimental". Very strange. I guess "experimental" is anything that hasn't been done rather identically a thousand times over.

would Monty Python's Flying Circus be considered as something experimental?? I think I will have a problem with this paper.. I will watch eraserhead because I have acces to it and see, and I'm bad on writting papers:/ Well we will see.

For Filip Kovcin -- man, you and I have a lot in common. Not only an admiration of Lev Kuhleshov, but now Zbigniew Rybczynski! I am a huge fan of his -- one of the original "video artists," in the same league as Ernie Kovacs. Wow!

chris,

we MUST talk about it. what a coincidence, or it's not... :)

i adore rybczynski's films and once i even talked to him for 7 hours, just about his films, aproach, solutions of certain "tricks" etc, many of his films i analized FRAME BY FRAME... but this is maybe not for this forum.

if you want - you can contact me via my normal mail, and we can talk about his movies etc. i'm sure we will have a LOT to discover and share!

filip
