Odilon Redon or The Eye Like a Strange Balloon Mounts Toward Infinity (Guy Maddin, 1995)

This is Guy Maddin’s interpretation of Odilon Redon. It’s so expressionistic and surreal, that at first I wondered if it might have been an early film like Bunuel’s. Very Dali-esque. The basic plot is competition between father and son for the love of the same woman. View here.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
