THE MAN WHO COULD NOT SEE FAR ENOUGH

by Peter ROSE
1981 / color / sound / 1S / 33' 00

THE MAN WHO ... uses literary, structural, autobiographical, and performance metaphors to construct a series of tableaux that evoke the act of vision, the limits of perception, and the rapture of space. Spectacular moving multiple images; a physical, almost choreographic sense of camera movement; and massive, resonant sound have inspired critics to call it "stunning" and "hallucinatory." The film ranges in subject from a solar eclipse to an ascent of the Golden Gate Bridge, and moves, in spirit, from the deeply personal to the mythic. "[A] powerfully formal, analytic inquiry into the nature of vision and cinema ... painfully beautiful images of mysterious events and things that split, multiply, migrate and quiver with a hallucinatory vibrance ... a rich fabric interlacing the metaphysical with the ironical." – Sally Banes, The Village Voice
