An odd inclusion in this collection of shorts...
6 September 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is one of many short films included on the DVD "Shorts 11: Ecstasy" which I recently watched from Netflix. However, it's a very odd choice for inclusion, as almost all the shorts were made in 1999 to 2001...yet this film is from 1955! And, unlike the other films, features fancy music by Elmer Bernstein--a very prolific composer for films throughout the decades.

The film is an odd short by any standard and was made by Charles and Ray Eames. Despite the name, Ray was Charles' wife--and this sure confused me at first. The short is a portrait of their experimental house and it consists of hundreds of slides of the home (which looks a lot like a Lloyd and Japanese design fused) that are set to wonderful music by Bernstein. In fact, to me, the best part of this non-commercial style film is the music--it's lovely and very evocative. As for the rest of this, I can respect it as a documentary and experimental work...but it is a bit dull and would not be of much interest to anyone other than architects and lovers of the modernism movement. I just liked the music...
