  • Editorial Reviews

    Working outside the mainstream, Stan Brakhage made nearly four hundred films. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of: birth, sex, death, and the search for God, Brakhage turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even autopsy. Many of his most famous works pursue the nature of vision itself and transcend the act of filming. Some, including the legendary Mothlight, were made without using a camera at all. Instead, Brakhage pioneered the art of making images directly on film--drawing, painting, and scratching it by hand. His visionary style has influenced everything from cartoons and television commercials to MTV music videos and the work of such mainstream moviemakers as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, and Oliver Stone. With these two volumes, we present the definitive Brakhage collection--fifty-six of his works in high-definition digital transfers, spanning his almost fifty-year career. (Films date from 1954-2003)
    By Brakhage: An Anthology, Volume One: Working completely outside the mainstream, Stan Brakhage has made nearly four hundred films over the past half century. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of: birth, sex, death, and the search for God, Brakhage has turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even actual autopsy.
    By Brakhage: An Anthology, Volume Two: In our first volume of By Brakhage, we brought twenty-six astonishing works by the avant-garde film pioneer Stan Brakhage to home video. In this second installment, we are proud to present thirty more of Brakhage's innovative creations, from 1950s films to his final work, from 2003.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons in Seeing June 2, 2010

    Stan Brakhage is NOT a storyteller in the traditional sense but what he does so great is to make us REALLY look at the story that is constantly going on around us (and in us ). His films depict worlds outside of History and Culture, moments of Pure Existence that most of us have fewer and fewer of as we get more enmeshed in History (our personal histories as well). I'll leave it to someone else to critique the individual films or make comparisons between this and the first volume. I just wanted to let you know WHY I love these films.

    4.0 out of 5 stars More Brakhage works come to Criterion December 26, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    This DVD set includes more films by Stan Brakhage which focus on some of his longer films. This set is available by itself on DVD or on Blu-ray with Volume one included.

    Stan Brakhage was one of the most influential and acclaimed experimental filmmakers of the late 20th century. Many of his films are made by painting directly on celluloid. Some of the films here include other techniques such as multiple exposures and other methods. These films are quite good and are very interesting. If you have not bought volume one, I recommend getting the box set if you have a Blu-ray player.

    bonus features include archival interviews with Brakhage and videos of him speaking at the University of Colorado, audio interviews and the 2009 film "For Stan" made by his widow, Marilyn Brakhage.
