BillieDoveHey, the first iPod commercial!
filmcaveI urge GodPepper and anyone else who favorites this ludicrous bit of trolling disguised as art to explain their position.
catherinefrancesthat music is goddamn terrifying!
BlueVoidI'm always iffy on 'experimental' anything, and 'Adebar' is the perfect example of why. The video is essentially distorted silhouettes dancing around with incomprehensibly irritating music playing. The music can only be compared to a toddler violently blowing into a recorder. I have no idea what value this short has, cinematic or otherwise. I can only imagine this is the kind of stuff they run on repeat to torture people. Absolutely brutal.
EmiamFor me: 3/10 on IMDb.
This is what night mares consists of.
Although there are always people who understand its context:
"Building on the discoveries of Breer, as well as on the rhythmic cutting of the French Impressionists and the Soviet Montage directors of the 1920s, Kubelka formulated a theory of “metrical” film: “Cinema is not movement. Cinema is a projection of stills—which means images which do not move—in a very quick rhythm.” Kubelka concluded that the basic units of cinema were not shots but the single frame and the interval between one frame and the next. The director could assemble frames into a fixed series and then build the film out of variations and manipulations of that series. For example, because the musical phrase to be used in Adebar lasted twenty-six frames, Kubelka decided that all his shots of dancing couples would be either thirteen, twenty-six, or fifty-two frames. These shots would combine to form "phrases.” Kubelka then varied the phrases according to a set of self-imposed rules; for example, a cut could link only positive and negative images. Adebar ends when all the combinations of shots have been exhausted. The process consumes a mere ninety seconds.

MulhollandI found it funny tbh
Admiral SoftyHis films are like Cold War brainwashing experiments. Seriously, that was an absolutely soul crushing two and half minutes.
starnamedstorkI'm totally making this my new ring tone.
Inevitable_destinyI suppose one could always favorite the "movie", simply for beeing 2min long.
Jumping ElephantAfter reading filmcave's comment I thought about favoriting this... but as you can see I decided against it.
EssexMutantPainful, painful music.
juanittomxthis was terrifying, 2 min of pure horror 0_o' the music the silhouettes ...
operationdropkickI'd love to know Kubelka's intentions and ideas behind this short because I have no idea why he made it.
srhale0012I want those two minutes back
