Fishtank ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The video vérité of Fishtank is contained with the compressed space of the flat. Ray stands alone in the dark kitchen, feeding fish. Liz plays computer games. Jason swats a fly on a wall. Sometimes they talk, sometimes they argue. Dispassionately, yet compassionately, Billingham's film registers the emotional territory of the flat and his family who live there. He creates a pattern of pathos, despair and hope. Fishtank crafts a terrible beauty from the landscape of family life"--Www.illumin.co.uk

Negative space ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this experimental documentary, film maker, novelist and critic Chris Petit offers a personal view of Manny Farber, perhaps the furthest left-of-field film critic of the post-war era. Farber unashamedly embraced popular tastes in movies and insisted on practical over academic jargon, working against the grain of so many critics of his time. Petit applies his own visual style and presents an intimate investigation of Farber's life and work. He uses the digital aesthetic to full effect, applying a split-screen which allows him to juxtapose contrasting images framed as polaroid snaps. As Petit reviews a reviewer, his narrative explores broader issues of how we look at and remember films, and how films invariably change with time
