Review

This is a contemplative essay film on life, death, and loss. New York-based mutimedia artist and musician, Laurie Anderson is the director and narrator of the film. Centered on her dog Lolabelle who died four years ago, the film talks about the world, human, and philosophy. Separate elements are interwined with simple narrative and media experiments. By using her artistic talents, Anderson presents a collage of 8mm home movie on her childhood, animation, words, letters, photos, and paintings by arranging them with autoassociative memory. The film shows how we put together different pieces of life. As her thought of Lolabelle develops, it becomes an avatar to perceive diverse mysteries of life. Her adaption of freewheeling journal style shows new kinds of narrative and style. (JANG Byungwon)
