In the best (and shortest) of these three landscape videos, Peter Rose's The Geosophist's Tears (2002), images of a slide rule, views from a moving car, and shots of overhead wires echo our culture's geometrical subdividing of land. In the longest, Andreas Horvath's The Silence of Green (2002), images of British farms and herds being culled combine with voice-over of residents talking about the 2001 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease and suggesting numerous conspiracies; the mix is emotionally effective, but the form is rambling, the cinematography artless. Julian Goldberger's almost unwatchable The Eulipion Chronicles Vol. 2 consists of nearly random footage of Southeast Asia; two girls smiling at the camera in rapid freeze-frames is one of many low points. 75 min.
