Monster Movie

 

“Sometimes on my way home from Catholic school, all I wanted was to be in front of the TV watching Godzilla crush cities, hurl trains and breathe the annihilation of radiation. Angry, inarticulate misunderstood Godzilla. We felt the same.”

Poet as Godzilla (rather than poet as god, à la Vicente Huidobro) is definitely a concept I can get behind. For the first couple of minutes, I was puzzled by all the different screen arrangements, but it eventually made sense… in fact, using videopoetry to critique movie making and movie watching is something that should happen more often, I think. (Dave Bonta, Moving Poems)
