Frantic frame edge defining nothingness. "Gidal's film Clouds establishes an awareness of position, a confrontation, and it takes you back to you from the far reaches of eternal space the confrontation as with you." - Steve Dwoskin, Independent Cinema (1970) The anti-illusionist project engaged by Clouds is that of dialectic materialism. There is virtually nothing ON screen, in the sense of IN screen. Obsessive repetition as materialist practice not psychoanalytical indulgence. - P.G. (Nov 1975)
