Vol 4 1987 - 88


"Bill is enthusiastic about all his early films and in their essence they are as relevant to him now as they were when he made them - this optimism is stamped on every frame of A Question of Faith, with its sure, steady images following each other in a deliberate order .... It reflects a personality in touch with how it feels, what it wants, and where it wants to go ..... In Bill's films, the physical world has an attraction, even an aura, in so far as it holds the secret of a utopian world .... Bill is at ease with the world because he infuses it with his own utopian vision .... And yet I wonder if this vision comes through unscathed on film."
                                                 - Mark La Rosa, Super-8 Yearbook, Feb 1988.

"Unexpected optimism etched in the mundane landscapes of the present."
