Some Strange White Stuff
May 8, 2012 5:08 PM   Subscribe

The Eagleman Stag is the 2011 BAFTA award winning Royal College of Art thesis film of director/writer Mikey Please. It's mostly made out of some strange white stuff, found in the back of a stress cushion.

Don't know what to say. Left me feeling empty. Not because of the quality of the film, but for what it seems to be saying. Quite excellent.

what it seems to be saying

Seems like a high Modernist meditation on time and memory, like Proust's In Search of Lost Time, but in 9 minutes of foam-animation instead of a 3000 page novel. Which is kind of weird because not many are doing high Modernism these days, but maybe I'm misinterpreting it.

Meditations on memory aren't necessarily Modernist.

This was quite enjoyable. Some lovely shots and some lovely concepts. It's fun watching an artist who's figuring out the nature of his obsessions. His new thing looks to be a continuation of those obsessions.

I thought this was really terrific.

I even made an FPP of it.
Which was not very clever of me.

True, but this one seemed to me like a high Modernist meditation on time and memory, like Proust's In Search of Lost Time.
