  1. This is actually not a series – it’s a feature documentary by Thom Andersen, from 2003. Thom was a – freaking brilliant – professor of mine at CalArts. He has shown this film a number of times there and elsewhere, though it’s never had a commercial release due to “rights issues.” That is, even though it’s fair use because it’s an example of – superb – criticism, he would still never be able to clear the film for insurance purposes nor avoid being sued if he tried to release it himself. I love this movie.

      I was referring to the documentary broken into a series on you tube. I am told it is on Netflix but that site’s search js so bad that I cannot find it.
