“How a Mosquito Operates” (1912) IMDb

Viewing

Seen in 2017.

Categorization

Surreal horror comedy.

Commentary

Less impressive on the technical level than “Winsor McCay” (1911). In particular, the repeated frames in short reversals and repetitions—loops—are very prominent. In a modern perspective they just look cheap.
