    This was a great introduction to Edward Yang! I have been putting off watching his films because of a strange feeling they might be a bit overhyped, but this was a great place to start and definitely made me more interested to watch A Brighter Summer Day and Yi Yi sooner, rather than later.

    ★★½

    The One Eyed, One Horned, Flying Purple People Eater does not eat any people but instead forms a band with children, rides a horse in a chase scene, and organizes a fundraiser to stop the antagonist from evicting senior citizens from their homes.

    As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty

    ★★★★½

    This is my second time watching this film and it truly is a “masterpiece of nothing.” This is one highly emotional life affirming ride and has such an amazing final sequence, which brought brought me to tears. This film is incredibly inspiring to me, not only as an artist, but as a human being trying to view life through a more positive lens searching for and identifying the occasional glimpses of beauty in my own life, and I hope to return to it, as well as continuing to explore Mekas’ other films.
