Phases of The Moon: "I usually avoid the term "film poem", because it was overused in the '40's and '50's. But somehow it fits "Phases of The Moon", it is a film poem and nothing else. A small, miniature film poem, a jewel, if the word masterpiece is too stuffy. "-- Jonas Mekas, Village Voice, October, 1973 "Phases of The Moon" is a film of many powerful and striking moments, but it seems organized according to a system that remains--on my two viewings, anyway -- obscure, as if one has been transported to some other planet, with different languages and is which the moon's phases followed rules incomprehensible to us". -- Fred Camper, The Chicagoan, March, 1978
