Jordan Belson - 5 Essential Films DVD



Allures (1961), Samadhi (1967), Light (1973), Fountain of Dreams (1984), and Epilogue (2005)

"These five films by Jordan Belson, representing his early, middle, and later periods, are essential for three reasons: the early classics were breakthrough masterpieces, the previously unreleased "Fountain of Dreams" is a dazzling revelation from the middle period, and the shimmering "Epilogue" from 2005 makes it clear that the master still has the spark of genius, breathing new life into the vocabulary he has developed over more than a half-century of visionary filmmaking." - Gene Youngblood
