Trypps #7 (Badlands)2010

  • 3.3
“Regarding LSD, brass bells, the youth of today, Terence Malick and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, phase cancellation, the Pine Ridge Reservation and the Romantic Sublime.” That’s how Ben Russell describes this surround sound installment of TRYPPS, an ongoing exploration of cinematic transcendence. An intensive portrait staged in the Badlands National Park gives way to a tremendous perceptual bolt by film’s end. Russell’s live enactment of cinema’s persistence-of-vision is literally revelatory.
