    This list is missing

    Samuel Beckett’s Film – A weird silent film starring a frail Buster Keaton
    Empire – Andy Warhol’s 10 Hour Static Shot of the Empire State Building

    and you may laugh but I’d put

    Freddy Got Fingered – Tom Green’s Studio Film is a Surrealist Nightmare not unlike many of the above mentioned.

    Someone please explain the ‘genuis’ of Wavelength, its unwatchable and unlistenable and annoying and silly. A 8 year old could have done it by accident!?

    the thing about what makes these movies so “great”? They aren’t by most people’s standards.
    Art, wether in film or other mediums, likewise literature, music and even gourmet food, have in large part always been the interest of a small minority of people who have appointed themselves arbiters of what is good and what is not,. They mistake their personal preferences for some demonstrably superior universal standard for what everyone should like. The most self-certain of these become critics. It’s fine if they have tastes different than the majority. More power to them. Most of us do, in one thing or another. But there is no right or wrong here, there is only personal taste. There is no accounting for taste.

    I’m also baffled by the Wavelength. As many of the experimental works maybe it isn’t actually made to be watched but to present an idea. And that idea is then refined by others, i have seen this effect used on many horrorfilms. But as a work of cinematic art it’s still nonsense and don’t actually require to be watched at all. The director of course feels different from that.

    “Johnny Got His Gun” starring Timothy Bottoms is both experimental and surreal !!!

    @CreamK Hi CreamK – I’m just here to defend Wavelength which I really like watching! It takes its time to do one thing (the sssllllooowww zoom) which I really like, but there are other things to distract me on the way, all the different stories that happen in the room. I live somewhere were life moves very slowly, so maybe I’m veyr patient. I am a normal person (a barman) with normal social skills and I’m not some weird art vampire living in my art castle

    I like plot. I like sequences of actions that are, in some way, causative. At the same time, I recognize that most of our explanations for our own actions and our reconstruction of events is largely fictitious. Humans have this horrible desire to have everything make sense and see everything as proceeding logically. It can be really great to see a film that undercuts all that and shows us things that don’t conform to our everyday constructs.

    I agree the list is missing. What about Dziga Vertov’s 1929 “Man with a Movie Camera”?
