As Enright's solo show is prepared for opening night, gallery owner Perry Rubenstein tells him, on the one hand, "You have created a world which is an entire mystery to people ... I'd idiot-proof it a little bit." Rubenstein then adds, "There is a beauty to it. Don't run away from it." DVD extras include a 69-minute film Blackgoat and a selection of the video loops that made up part of his show at Perry Rubenstein Gallery. These are compelling and creepy, though what's remarkable is that Lipes' documentary takes a similar approach in the form of an extended narrative - and with higher production values. I'm sure if Enright ever made a feature film it would disturb and even annoy me, but I would really be curious to see it.
Factory 25 has also released Torben, an LP by Brock Enright and Kirsten Dierup. The recording mix is muddy, which is too bad because its pleasures are of the more conventional melodic variety, even for a track called "ouijaboard" in which Dierup takes on the mouse persona that you see in the film. The LP sides are structured around a concept that I can't explain without revealing the surprisingly moving end of the film.
