#93- Meshes of the Afternoon

Quick recap: A woman falls asleep, except she’s not. There’s also a key, a flower and a knife that are important for some reason. And also a guy with a mirror face. Basically, what one would expect in a 14 minute art house film.

The phone is off of the hook! How deep! Such meaning!

Fun (?) fact: I’m out on the porch as I type this, and I think I’m about to watch a battle between a wasp and random bird.

My thoughts: If I’m going to be entirely honest, here are my exact thoughts as I watched this film:

Is it a requirement for all experimental films to feature a flower?

Gross! Is the symbolism flirting with death, because that's what she's doing putting that nasty key in her mouth.

That's.....off-putting?

I could continue, but I think my point has been made. I got that the main character was asleep and I think I understood that she was in a dream but that’s about it. On one hand, I could take the time to analyze the film and research its true meaning, but that kind of ruins the ‘wtf’-ness of it all.

Final review: 2/5. The film was creepy, but overall all the symbolism turned me off.
