FILM: Best of 2005

Chrissie Iles

CHRISSIE ILES

1 “DESTRICTED” For this series of short films, Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Marco Brambilla, Larry Clark, Mike Figgis, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Gaspar Noé have—or soon will have—created (at the behest of Neville Wakefield, Mel Agace, and Andrew Hale) some of the sexiest moments in recent cinema. Strictly for adults.

2 AUA AUA (DOROTHY IANNONE) Living in Germany since the late ’60s, expatriate Dorothy Iannone has created a voluptuous, libertarian, and unashamedly erotic body of work. A film (from 1972) framed within a large, hand-painted box sculpture, Aua Aua celebrates life with her lover Dieter Roth.

3 FALLEN (FRED KELEMEN) Kelemen’s searing camera follows the existential crisis of a man tortured by his failure to stop a woman jumping from a bridge and his journey through the city of Riga, retracing her life.

4 STORIES ARE PROPAGANDA (PHILIPPE PARRENO AND RIRKRIT TIRAVANIJA)
