Dir. Bill Morrison (2002). Bill Morrison isn't the first artist to take decomposing film stock as his raw material, but he plunges into this dark nitrate of the soul with contagious abandon. Accompanied by Michael Gordons no-less-textured wall of sound, the calligraphy of decay grows increasingly hallucinated and catastrophic. Decasia is a fierce dance of destruction; its flame-like roiling black-and-white inspires trembling and gratitude.
