Audits again today ! hurrah !

No progress last night.

Watched an extremely avant guard film made by my landlord's son. (film making graduate).

There was too much in it. It was hampered rather than enhanced by its non liner format. Perhaps a film maker could go for either a non liner film or a story line that requires a little interpolation by the viewer. Having to interprate a non liner film that did not make every important point twice was hard work in that it prevented one from actually enjoying the film. It was technically competent, but required an awful lot from the viewer; too much perhaps ?

There is a line in cinema between art and entertainment. Straddling that line requires enormous resources to satiate a modern audience. Perhaps jumping wholly one way or the other might have produced a more concise product.
