IN SAYING 
EVERYTHING ABOUT A MOVIE?

 
A STUDY IN CHOREOGRAPHY FOR CAMERA (director/writer: Maya Deren; cinematographer: Maya Deren; editor: Maya Deren; cast: Talley Beatty (Dancer); Runtime: 4; MPAA Rating: NR; Mystic Fire Video; 1945)

 
"Deren strikes another blow for culture and film technique."

Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz 

Avant-garde filmmaker Maya Deren ("Meshes of the Afternoon") directs this experimental dance film. A bare-chested Talley Beatty expressively dances some ballet movements inside a museum and seems to be gliding through space. Before you know it, the 4-minute film ends and Deren strikes another blow for culture and film technique.
