Film wish list: ENIAIOS (Gregory J. Markopoulos, 80 hours)

Film wish list: ENIAIOS (Gregory J. Markopoulos, 80 hours)

Here is what Fred Camper wrote about ENIAIOS in Sight and Sound magazine: "Eniaios is perhaps the most purely cinematic of films. Other arts are major inspirations, to be sure, but the film itself, with its flash frames and solid blacks and whites alternating in amazingly architectural rhythms (I thought, among other things, of classical temple columns separated by sky) can stand for, and in some ways surpass, what is best about the greatest films: a rhythmically pulsating rectangle of light. It attains an all-encompassing hugeness unparalleled in any other film I know."
