‘Tortured Dust’

Taking its title from Marguerite Young’s stream of consciousness novel Miss MacIntosh, My Darling, this ninety-minute flood of impressions closed the book on the monumental undertaking that Stan Brakhage began in the late 1960s, documenting his wife and children in their Rocky Mountain cabin. The film is rarely screened; it goes without saying that it is demanding, troubling, and exalted.
