anti-film - everything falls - heaviness and grace - cynical, ironic, and anarchic - ironicizes the hell of history - a film that spares no one - footage of corpses in the Warsaw ghetto - piles of dead bodies, machines for processing meat - György Lukács: any understanding of art a normative misunderstanding - shoot at everything that you can: clocks, mirrors, and film

Scratched film stock that reminds us that film remains in a state of birth, a shocking poem of physical suffering and the danger of organized violence that can be denied by a cynical but free gesture.
