This might be a short post, because I'm not entirely certain what to make of this movie.

The plot of Aimless Walk is fairly simple, a guy is taking an aimless walk, then while sitting in the grass he turns into two people, and one of the two people walks away.

Its a short film, made by a decently well known Czech filmmaker, who is now better known for being Maya Deren's husband. You may walk away from the film feeling rather ambivalent towards it.

That's how I felt at first, but it stuck with me. There's something eerie about this film. It's like The Student of Prague if the double was never heard from again, and no one got anything out of it. The loss of the double doesn't even seem to be something strange, it seems more just to be something that happens.

A little change in your day, that leaves you feeling not quite yourself.
