“ For over 40 years Jacobs has been jump-starting rebellious energies… Believing that our culture already has far too many extant images, he leisurely revisits an assortment of ‘primal’ scenes in order to unleash little shards of beauty, terror, sexuality, and other desiderata concealed by the full-speed tyrannies of movie camera, commercial projection, and generic convention.
