The Fringe Experience by Adrian Martin
“Some viewers will recognise members of the Experimental Film Society. They are a Fringe Society, on the margins of decency and good sense. We have slowly entered the realm of the mythic – but a broken, indecipherable myth… The spectator is a pinball pinging between The Wizard of Oz and Carmelo Bene, between Wild at Heart and pink erotica… The prodigious cinema of Rouzbeh Rashidi and his fine feathered friends.” – Adrian Martin, The Fringe Experience
Adrian is one of my favourite film critics and film theorists of all time. Over the years I have learned a great deal about cinema by reading his captivating and inspirational writings. His works have been a significant influence on me and some of my colleagues. Therefore, I’m honoured to share this review.
The film will be premiered later this year so please watch this space here.
