February 12, 1994 | KRISTINE McKENNA, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The thing you have to remember about experimental film is that its roots are in the static visual arts rather than the movies. A rigorously conceptual practice that concerns itself with such things as the mechanics of perception, the believability of images and the dismantling of cinematic cliches, experimental films care not a whit about linear narrative, heroes and villains and box-office prowess. They are, in short, diametrically opposed to all the Hollywood industry holds dear.
