Swanberg did some great films with Greta Gerwig but i can understand if someone hates his films.
But my favorites ones are Cold Weather (katz) and of course Safdie bros films, The Pleasure of Being Robbed and Go Get Some Rosemary.
Juan Downey is one of the pioneers of the early video art movement, although his controversial and innovative practice covers a variety of media including paintings, drawings and installation. This chapter of The Thinking Eye, screenings and talks, focuses on Downey's series of the same title and brings together all four videos. Started in 1979, the series' ambition was to project Downey's own autobiography onto the official languages and historiography of Western Culture throughout the ages. It was also an "attempt to decipher the self by means of cultural obsessions" as Downey explained himself. Complex interpretative systems of analysis -- linguistic, psychoanalytic, art historical, semiotic -- are applied to the intellectual, artistic and historical myths and traditions of Western culture. Downey uses the video technology to address the 'self' through cultural, political and economic systems. The cognitive eye evokes the relativity of perception through a questioning of subjectivity and interaction between artist, spectator and subject.
