Shorts #3

The seven videos in Shorts #3 (84 min.) include portraits of fascinating eccentrics. Cheryl Dunn's Bicycle Gangs of New York depicts, among others, members of Black Label, who build and ride tall bikes, the group Manhattan Rickshaw, and a unicyclist moving along busy streets, but the irritating, repetitive techno sound track blurs the distinctions between them. The clueless narcissist in Brandon Dickerson's quietly insightful Mel Howard: Professional Music Video Actor (2003) gripes that a camera passed him and focused on another actor (with a far more interesting face), then talks about his “legacy.”
