T,O,U,C,H,I,N,G (1969) is a maddeningly disorienting piece of avant-garde film. It creates a series of psychological effects that elicit thought provoking imagery. A piece of the structural film movement, the short film consists of only a few separate images. For 12 minutes, these images, most prominently a man with scissors over his tongue and a hand covering his mouth, repeat in flashes of color, while a man repeats “Destroy” over and over again.
