Frame by Frame

UNL graduate Bruce Conner . . .

. . . was one of the major experimental filmmakers of the 20th century. This detailed obituary from 2008 details his life and work, with numerous links.

Of all his films, Cosmic Ray and Report stand out for me the most; you can rent many of his films at Canyon Cinema; apparently, at the present moment, Report, perhaps the best film on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, seems to be unavailable. Let’s hope it soon gets back into circulation.
