More Confusing Than Clarifying
10 April 2017 | by pegasus3See all my reviews

The film offers some interesting archival clips of the early history of cinema as well as many of Braque and Picasso's cubist works. As to whether these beginnings of cinema and the revolutionary art forms which evolved in Braque and Picasso's cubist art are intimately connected is never convincingly outlined. Instead the viewer is left with a lot of abstract critical pontifications which end up more confusing than clarifying.
