An Evening with Sami Van Ingen

Carson Lund @ Are the Hills Going to March Off?

  • Excerpt: It’s obvious that [Sami] van Ingen’s an eclectic filmmaker capable of working expressively with a number of experimental approaches. Cambridge-based avant-garde group Balagan’s recent program likely only scratches the surface of an oeuvre that hopefully contains further variations on the disparate textures, structures, and meditations presented here.

Carson Lund @ Are the Hills Going to March Off?

  • Excerpt: In the context of Hollywood Vietnam War films, Samuel Fuller’s China Gate (1957) and George Englund’s The Ugly American (1963) represent two distinct poles: the former is a B-movie less concerned with social and political statements than with melodrama and spectacle while the latter purports to be an important, liberal-minded Big Statement movie about the political involvement of the United States in Southeast Asian affairs.
