Intervals1973

  • 3.7
INTERVALS is the Peter Greenaway’s self-described “attempt” at creating an entertaining, abstract film; a series of bustling streetscapes from that most photogenic of cities, Venice. Using a self-conscious experiment in frame rate and a structure borrowed from the most Venetian of concertos (Antonio Vivaldi’s "Four Seasons"), Greenaway’s increasingly sophisticated film stands as a testament to the artificiality that the cinematic medium represents.

Currently a camera in an urban space means only one thing: surveillance. But in this film the camera serves as a vehicle of curation - a collection of shots considered and reconsidered; a portrait of a city at a certain time and in certain places. Perhaps a nod to Zorns Lemma in the soundtrack!

I appreciated its experimental qualities, but didn't find it compelling...perhaps if I was more familiar with other of his works it would be more significant to me. I found it to be a collage - but without substance.

Interesting, rhythmic and always moving. I greatly enjoyed the image and

tempo of this short.

Greenaway always amazes me.

Rhythmic, subtle & engaging. Very, very engaging.
