Bill Morrison is preoccupied with damaged film. He tells his story using stressed and distorted footage. And it is beautiful every time. Sometimes there are two stories: the literal and the abstract. I like anything that tells two stories at once. He also collaborates with some heavy-hitting composers. But there could be none of that, just the organic permutations and visual exploration of film artifacts, and it would be enough for me.
