Fog Line1970

  • 4.2
Called “a small but perfect film” by no less than American avant-garde cinema’s patron saint Jonas Mekas, Larry Gottheim’s groundbreaking early work is a silent single-shot short in which the camera remains stationary but nature provides magical action. A landscape framed by the stretch of electrical wire between poles ever-so-slowly emerges in real time as a heavy fog lifts. It is a view we might dismiss with a glance in real life but (with the attention that must be paid here) reveals how endlessly fascinating such a seemingly mundane event really is. - Dennis Harvey

Beautiful, though needs to be at a higher resolution. The pixels bond with the fog and create unity. This is not a good thing.
