Three is a severe limitation, but if you insist, one way to get at it is to start not with films but with major traditions since mid-century and select exemplary works within them. So for example abstract (Brakhage), minimalist (Warhol, Wavelength), essayistic (Marker, Farocki, Forgacs). I include Brakhage’s lens-captured films in the problematic “abstract."
