Certainly when one ponders ‘forms and designs’ in a cinematic sense this sensory film is envisioned at the forefront. I still think of it as Teshigahara’s supreme masterpiece.
A masterpiece it is. Really widens one’s visual horizons. Cheers, Sam!
Some of the most amazing close ups in film, I think. Not only beautiful compositions but really communicating harshness of nature, claustrophobia and lust.
Right you are, Stephen. And it simply works on the edge of perceptibility, swapping landscape with body parts, working best on a purely formal level. Cheers!
Gorgeous images. Some of these almost look like weird computerized images of an imaginary space (like that that mesh design 8 spots down).
Gorgeous, hypnotic, unnerving. As the film progresses, the difference between human, natural, manmade forms progressively blur and everything is elevated into a purely visual field. Sand, man, woman, insect, water, fire – all become one.
