Eclipse 1965: Čovek nije ptica

Wow, this is a snappy film. After watching so many slow French and Japanese movies, it’s overwhelming.

Makavejev’s name seems extremely familiar — I feel like I should know who he is, but I don’t, really.

Very chaotic.

This movie looks great. The shakycam is a bit hard on my stomach, though.

It’s an uneven film — there’s brilliant, striking scenes here, and then there’s jokey anecdote asides that are… fun? But altogether, it doesn’t quite gel, I think.


Man is Not a Bird. Dušan Makavejev. 1965.
