To be fair, I rewatched Commingled Containers. Then I read Martin's review, and the two brought it all back to me. Time has not softened my opinion of Brakhage.

I do wonder... When a movie goes to a dance club and the time period is the late 60s/early 70s, it's common to have some kind of acid trip, kaleidoscope visuals projected on the walls. Is that Brakhage influenced, perhaps using actual Brakhage shorts or the filmmakers creating their own freak-out in the Brakhage style?

Costa-Gavras Ranked List
★ ★ : #276 out of 427
I'm going to be watching two from early in his career.
The Sleeping Car Murder (1965)
The Confession (1970)

I was planning to continue this along with Shocktober. I watched the first film a week ago, but trying to power through The Confession today, I knew I wasn't being fair. Felt like I had homework to do while everyone else was outside playing. Looking ahead to the next director, there were a couple of thrillers to consider, but still I'd rather be attending to my Shocktober Watchlist. So I'm hitting the pause button.
