Praise for previous editions of Visionary Film
: "Without question it is the first such book on the avant-garde film--the first one that probes this field in such depth, with such perspective and vision, with such insight and intelligence."--Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice
"Extremely informative and dense with associations that give it an importance and interest beyond the immediate subject matter."--Vincent Canby, The New York Times
"It is an event of no small importance that a work has now appeared on personal film that ranks as a first-rate work of critical analysis, bearing comparison with the best criticism in more traditional media. This book signals a coming of age for the literature of personal film.... For those who have never been able to see the films discussed, Visionary Film
creates a powerful motivation to do so."--Afterimage
