Description: Avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage has labelled his 1963 film Dog Star Man his cosmological epic. This virtually indescribable film was released in a prelude and four parts. These were not titled but dated instead: Prelude, 1962; Part One, 1963; Part Two 1964 and so forth. While toiling on this project, Brakhage also managed to finish The Art of Vision, derived from Dog Star Man leftovers, and wrote the script for Metaphors of Vision. If you're looking for a plot, you've come to the wrong filmmaker. If you're looking for a fascinating mosaic of images combined to interpret the creation of the universe, then Dog Star Man will be right up your alley.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
