As filmmaker Stan Brakhage has written of Ball's two works on the death of his mother and the death of his father, he "has accomplished something unique in the autobiographical genre of motion pictures. " Jonas Mekas declared Ball's Mexican Jail Footage "the best jail film I've seen"; of the same movie Robert Frank exclaimed "I can't forget this film."

A work by Ball eschews technical polish in favor of "technical sincerity"; it may be made, in part, on the run, as with Father Movie; it may be, as with his first work, Georgia, shot completely spontaneously. It is, as the filmmaker has written, "negligent of all but its own earn est rhythmic awareness... what one person and no other can give us." It is uncompromising and full of heart, strong eno ugh to make one, as poet Allen Ginsberg has written of Ball 's Enthusiasm, "cry for life itself." Ball's films have been shown on three continents and at a range of instituti ons, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Art Institute, the San Fra ncisco Cinematheque, Anthology Film Archives, Kyoto Cinematheque, and British Film Institute, and have won prizes at a number of festivals.
