Robert Breer Obituary in the New York Times

William Grimes’s article covers the life and work of late Canyon Cinema filmmaker and animator Robert Breer:

“In films like “Recreation” (1956), “A Man and His Dog Out for Air,” (1957), “69” (1968) and “Swiss Army Knife With Rats and Pigeons” (1980), viewers were bombarded with wiggling lines, letters, abstract shapes and live-action images that jumped and flashed, zoomed and receded, appeared and disappeared, inflicting what Mr. Breer once called “assault and battery on the retina.””
