A powerful and unique film that is all too little known today. Called a «masterpiece» by Pat O’Neill, <![CDATA[<i>]]>unc.<![CDATA[</i>]]> is still Bruce Lane’s singular, massive cinematic statement (at least until his Journal of Albion Moonlight project reaches its conclusion), winning a good deal of acclaim around the time of its release. <![CDATA[<i>]]>unc.<![CDATA[</i>]]> is a haunting, affecting three-minute epic constructed of memorable images and densely imagined narrative fragments distilled to an essence that registers dread, dissolution, fear, and despair, but also a bittersweet melancholy, both for an idealized past and a diseased present. And the film’s present, though very much the present of 1966, is utterly (and sadly) timeless.
