CGiii Comment

What was Willard Maas on when he made this?

Some of the imagery is perplexingly good...but, the words...Jesus H. Christmas...pretension tied-up with bows!


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

A quotation from Aristophanes, 'The desire and pursuit of the whole is called love,' precedes views of a man and a woman's bodies, often in extreme close up. Off-screen, a voice recites fragments of oracular literature and purple prose. We see an eye, an ear, a mouth, a tongue, bits of hair, a hand, the tips of fingers, toes. Occasionally, the frame includes a larger scape of a body: a chest, a back, a breast. Usually the camera is stationery; sometimes, it moves across a body, remaining in close up. They hold hands for one moment. The bodies are without clothes; no genitalia are visible. Geography of the Body takes as its subject not the mind but flesh itself, abstracting the human form through a montage of extreme close-ups.
