Edwin Denby says, "Happy with his luscious daughter Aurora in a rustic setting, Professor Borealis has devised an improved brain and is ready to transplant it. The humor is tenderly black. Burckhardt’s fusion of documentary-type photography with fairytale storyline is nearer Keystone than avant-garde with its visual honesty and particular virtuosity."

Note to future filmmakers: (as the makers of this mess are long gone, or at the very least selling fertilizer) Just because you've read a classic play like Shakespeare's The Tempest, or seen a classic horror flick like Frankenstein. And your friends think you'd make a cool director because you own a camera that can fit on a tripod, and they'll appear in it even though they really really really can't act, doesn't mean you should actually make a movie. Oh, and no-budget films can be good. Remember "Dark Star" and "Blair Witch" .

New note to future filmmakers: (since I found out who the filmmaker really is) just because you're a "lauded" artist (by a bunch of pretentious snobs who admire your billboards(?)) and you've done this before with varying results and you have a bio article in Wikipedia, and organizations like Du Pont give you grant money, still doesn't you mean you should make movies.....and show them to an audience.

We hope you're enjoying this free preview.
