"A film like MARE'S TAIL is an epic film flight into an inner space. It is a 2 3/4 hour visual accumulation, which, as it is the film-maker's personal odyssey, becomes the odyssey of each of us.... It flies, swims and moves from point to point-just like each of us. The lines move into shapes which move into orbits and your eyes water into colours. What each of us can see is more than what we do see. The film becomes one of the most vital penetrations into the experience of seeing.... Ranging from the abstract to the figurative form, MARE'S TAIL allows no direct verbal way to give it its position. It not only goes from the abstract to the figurative, in terms of its objective view, but explores the subjective responses as well. It is a classic in film perception." --Steve Dwoskin
