Jonas Mekas United States, 1969

El Biffo's rating of the film Walden

Unimpressed by a film we were seeing at PFA, my friend and I left during the middle, went home and watched this. It was beautiful. Also known as "Walden", you can see it on UBU. Stop the action anywhere for a beautiful still photograph. Brilliant. Jonas Mekas' reputation as "The godfather of American avant-garde cinema" is well-deserved.
