That is to say, the 1980 short film. Watched it as a YouTube video with the director’s introduction. Nothing outstanding, to be honest, although the landscapes are fine (some reminded me of similar landscapes I’d been to) and so is the music. I suspect that the temporary popularity it gained a few years ago was largely due to its having been originally screened before the second Star Wars film, lost and found again.
Then again, perhaps I’m still too restive; this is a movie for the relaxed and patient. And I’m glad I’ve finally found the time to watch it (I’ve had it bookmarked for months) for precisely this reason. It must have been months since I’d last sit down and watched any video longer than ten minutes. After rediscovering the pleasure of long reading, perhaps I’ll rediscover the pleasure of watching a full-length movie before this year is over as well.
