Product Description

A collection of films and videos from experimental filmmaker Jeff Keen. Keen began making films at the age of 37 when his art school film society needed things to show. And so began over 40 years of unique, imaginative, irrepressible filmmaking. This release contains over nine hours of work by the filmmaker, from his 1960s beatnik movies to his multi-layered videos of the 1990s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Work, Fantastic Value 10 April 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I wasn't very familiar with Jeff Keen's work when I bought the Blu-Ray set from the BFI, but it has proven to be a great addition to my collection. There is plenty of material in the extras and in the accompanying booklet to provide an introduction to Keen's films, so as long as you're open to some eclectic, high-energy collages of popular culture and found objects, you'll find this an illuminating, demanding but exhilarating experience. The man himself is an engaging, defiantly idiosyncratic interviewee, and the joy of many of these films is the way he pours everything in, from self-portraits, to scavenged detritus, pop-culture junk and anything else that catches his magpie eye. While Blu-Ray is often sold on its HD, hygienically clean images, this set will show off its capacity for preserving the look of shop-worn 16mm film (only one of the discs is BD, the others are DVD).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant collection of an art maverick 16 July 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This is an excellent compilation, on both DVD and Blu-ray, of the career of Jeff Keen. Now if you have ever seen any of his work you will know that you cannot watch too much in one go, as the rapid-fire editing can make your head hum! The original context of these short films were screened on the walls of Brighton clubs, adding to the overall strangeness. Seeing these images clean and on a lovely blu-ray transfer is a real revelation, and repeated watches allows you to appreciate some of the finer details. Some of the more recent films are slightly less inspired than the early era, but there is enough material here to keep any fan happy.
The booklet is incredibly informative, and their is space in the box for a forthcoming Jeff Keen CD to be released. Overall this is an amazing package, but you should only buy it if you have a taste for modern art, or maybe watching Terry Gilliam animations on speed...
