I think I read this when I was more than a little jaded to the revolutionary promise of experimental & underground filmmaking. As such, I think I found it a little naive. But, what the fuck, I'll take Mekas' passion anyday over a hopeless world. Mekas loves & champions work that's made its mark but how many people actually care I don't know. I mean, the multiplexes are still full of tits & guns right? I mean, the tits are fine by me but let's lose the guns, alright? &, for that matter, let's make people think about something OTHER THAN TITS too while we're at it.
