Experimental Movies

Hey guys I have a paper to write in my film class. I need t opick a film to write about. This is a funky format class and I don't know many experimental movies. I have to pick a film that doesn't give us what we expect from it. Like memento, irreversible or russian ark.. I need titles of those movies which are made not for hollywood .. Can anybody help ?? ?thanks

marcin,

try with ZBIGNIEW RYBCZYNSKI.

the one and only - he recieved the oscar for his animated film "TANGO" in 1983 (if i'm not wrong).

sometimes he signs his works as ZBIG RYBCZYNSKI

other works:

- orchestra
- kafka
- 4th dimension
- manhattan
- steps

and many, many more.

since you are polish (at least origin) this will be really nice to try.

====================
the following sentence is in polish - just simple info that marcin - if he want may send e-mail message to me in polish language:
====================
marcin, jesli chcesz, napisz mi mejla to ci powiem wiecej o rybczynskim. dzieki

David Lynch is a good start too

You could do David Lynch with -
-Eraser Head
-Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

David Cronenberg
-Videodrome
-Naked Lunch

Terry Gilliam
-Brazil
-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

just to name a few

Russian Ark wasn't made for Hollywood, and it was definitely
experimental (in the camera department).

i'm not marcin's professor, but i think of experimental film in a different way. for me it's really more rybczynski style than russian ark.

does anyone know any of rybczynski's films?

oh, i remembered one - you couldn't miss - video for john lennon's "imagine" - no computers, just priecise "endless" movement - and OLD highdefinition camera - (1125 lines)!
from left to right endless rooms all in white, with manhattan in background.

this video is probably least experimental in his works.

check this link - maybe you can recognize this video

http://www.medienkunstnetz.de/werke/imagine/

also this

http://www.medienkunstnetz.de/works/nowa-ksiazka/

and this

http://www.medienkunstnetz.de/werke/steps/

enjoy!!!!

he is real genius!!! just check WHEN (which year) all those films were made!

sorry - maybe i'm annoing, but just found another link.

i will NOT post today any new rybczynski's link, promise :))

http://www.pesarofilmfest.it/pesaro2...nski/tango.jpg

maybe you will recognize now...?

thanks

filip

I have seen tango

Haha, that single screen shot actually did it for me, I saw that YEARS ago when I was a kid. It starts with a boy's ball bouncing in the kitchen right? And then more characters keep being added to it, like the burglar. It is experimental, but it is a short, is it not? I think to write a paper you would need a feature length film.

<<<-- Originally posted by Mitchell Stookey : It starts with a boy's ball bouncing in the kitchen right? And then more characters keep being added to it, like the burglar. -->>>


yes, it starts with a boy and a ball.

that's the one. and it's short - yes. about 10 minutes i guess.

but i didn't recognized that marcin needs to write about full lenght feature film. if this is the case - then try to find KAFKA by rybczynski this is 1h or something. *there is also another KAFKA but not directed by rybczysnki, kind of more "normal" film.

Well it doesn't really have to be full lenght film . I have to be able to interpret the message that film has to offer through the way it is made. In last class we watched GEORGE. About two guys walking in desert. That was something increrible:) Well ok thanks guys I will take a look at the titles you gave me and choose something possibly today:) Thanks

Marcin
