02.06.06Internet This is only 6 minutes long but I have to make an entry anyway because in the bits that aren't just an Aphex Twin music video this is some of the creepiest stuff I've seen in a while. It's between this and The Descent now for creepiest nightsthot imagery. I really really wish Cunningham yielded more output though. His music video work, especially with Richard James, is so unbelievably horrific that I couldn't even imagine a whole movie of it. And this, with just like a minute's worth of footage that's not blippy and cutty set to Aphex's music is so unsettling and unique, I don't want to say I want him to work more because I don't know how much work goes into these little videos and shorts but I am so anxious to see him tackle some form of narrative. I know he had an installation piece somewhere of floating naked people hurting each other which was excerpted on his Director's Label DVD... and I guess that's like 10 or 20 minutes or something but... come on... It almost feels like this short takes the easy way out by reverting to Aphex Twin music video quick cuts.. the first two minutes set up something so eerie it's just incredible. Nightmarish stuff which I'm seeing nowhere else these days. I want more!
