AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY
Nance | 2011 | US | 95m
*Q&A w/ Nance
“New Directors/New Films”
9:00 at MoMA

“A fast paced iteration of young male infatuation, obsession, and yes, the oh so overused L word, Nance’s Oversimplification throws the kitchen sink at the problems of modern cinema. It seems to be inventing its own cinematic language from the ground up. From claymation to direct address, it’s in here. A fine, rare bird: Nance’s film, regardless of its aesthetic pyrotechnics and self-reflexivity, is wholly, fully, truly accessible to everyone. If Hollis Frampton and Nina Paley had somehow, through the force of magic realism, had a black love child, it would have grown up to direct something like this.”
Brandon Harris, Hammer to Nail [Read More]
