Experimental Cinema [dvd]
Rameau's Nephew by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen illustrates his research both in the visual arts and in sound: it is an authentic 'talking picture,' built from the true units of the syllable and the frame. All the possible image/sound relationships centering around people and speech generate the movie-audience relationships, a wide range of emotional possibilities; the experience of seeing/hearing this film.

Michael Snow's Rameau's Nephew Etc. makes me crazy, makes the top of my head go flying off. I have a need of its particular regenerative insanity at least once a month. —Amy Taubin, The Soho Weekly News, 1977
