In the Course of
"A primitive, yet seductive 'tableau' of twisted metal where bulldozers are prehistoric monsters that tear bits of metal and stone from the vulnerable concrete. Angerame films in a spectacle of extremely precise shots that surgically unveil our obsession with destruction and technological decline.
An exquisite black and white surrealist depiction of the Embarcadero Freeway demolition, in which dinosaurlike tractors gnash at an organic tangle of steel reinforcements…Inanimate objects and heavy machinery become living metaphors for generation through the director’s signature use of high-contrast, time-lapse, and double exposure cinematography.
a film that combines shorts of the tearing down of the Embarcadero Freeway in
San Francisco with industrial music—a proposal of an ambivalent interpretation
