A hallucinatory LSD trip, „The Image Fisherman” is a mockery reinterpretation of the aesthetics of experimental cinema, a quirky exercise in free association and editing. In a collage of live-action and animation, the filmmaker reveals fragments of memories, subconscious thoughts, fears, obsessions, doubts, suggestively released from photo albums and letter-packed suitcases. The ironically grave voice-over commentary is playfully and energetically undermined by the eruption of kaleidoscopic images, in an uncontainable incandescence of imagination that is both flustering and entertaining.
