Trivia

There are only 8 videos and 3 commercials by Cunningham on the DVD. He did make commercials and videos before Come to Daddy, but he did not include them on the DVD because he thought his early work was "sh*t". However, Second Bad Vibel, his first video, is the only one that remains on the DVD. See more »

Very excellent DVD retrospect of excellent director
11 November 2003 | by metalannihilatorSee all my reviews

I bought the DVD, being an Aphex Twin fan, and was happy with the format quality. While there was no real original content besides two very excellent installations, commercials, and a documentary, the ability to view his body of work linearly lets the viewer get inside Cunningham's surreal world. My only complaint was a lack of info on how the videos were made (aside from the Bjork documentary) which would have set the content as a buy of the year. Definitely a buy for anyone interested in directing and even moreso for fans of the nightmarish otherworld of the unconscious.
