A supernatural thriller about a woman dealing with the void left by her recently deceased father. Mysterious tone piece with razor sharp editing & gorgeous images. Robert Barnett’s extraordinary and masterful short lurches towards a new way of expressing the mysterious facts of the world. It is deeply elliptical, extraordinarily paced — it articulates the moves and trance-states, the pagan devotions, dead loves, mountain hum in ritual candle terror, after-death, the hold and any-release, flash in the mirror makes you wonder what the point of exposition is in other films, designed for rewatching —Why shouldn’t all movies be? Rivette: “Why make it simple when you can make it complicated?” Barnett: “I was the dead in my body at night. They take me to their old lives.” -Craig Keller
