Max Forbert > Stray Sinatra Neurone

NOTES...
Forbert made some four hundred of these movies during his lifetime. He worked as a janitor around several movie cutting rooms in Hollywood and took to saving bits of discarded film. Much of the stock is scratched and often badly damaged, but this only adds to the mystery and romance of the footage. He later acquired a viewer / editor machine junked from one of the rooms and set this up in his attic. When Forbert died, Arnold acquired the work and considers it to be the highlight of his collection. This is a section of a Forbert film that he identifies as using cutting room outtakes from a Sinatra movie, among others which remain unidentified. Shots are: Back view of a man in a suit looking through the window of a set interior (too tall for Sinatra - possibly an extra brought in to test-light a scene). Some brief outdoor shots of cars driving through a glittering downtown New York. Close-up of a woman applying deep red lipstick - again this appears to be a test shot of make-up and lighting. Location shots of Paris and Rome. Intricately cut together, these damaged fragments become an almost tactile essay on the sensual textures and enigmatic images that film can make available.
