Lost in the Movies (formerly The Dancing Image): Video Essays: the complete directory

Video Essays: the complete directory


Here is a complete, continually updated directory of all my video essays, defined loosely to mean almost any work where I edited film clips to create criticism, tribute, or meditation on the work. I've organized it three ways for the viewers' convenience: in the order they were created, by the subject of the essay (linking to the posts with further descriptions - check these for spoilers, content warnings, etc), and finally by approach - narrated, non-narrated, comparison, montage, etc.
