"A & B in Ontario was completed eighteen years after the original material was shot. After [Hollis] Frampton's death, the film was assembled by [Joyce] Wieland into a cinematic dialogue in which the collaborators (in the spirit of the sixties) shoot each other with cameras."

"One pleasant surprise [...] is the return of Joyce Wieland, a founding figure of the Canadian avant-garde, with a new movie, A and B in Ontario. Although Wieland gave up filmmaking after she completed The Far Shore about a decade ago, she collaborated with Hollis Frampton to make A and B, finishing it herself after his death in the spring of 1984. The film has a deceptively playful surface; basically, the two artists chasing each other around with compact Bolex cameras for 15 minutes. However, the striking compositions and Wieland's deft editing of footage dating from the sixties make A and B a fascinating meditation on that basic grammatical figure of movies, the point-of-view shot."
