Through an unconventional use of concise narrative, a conceptual collage of sounds and images, and a rapid-fire montage, Arthur Lipsett's first film vividly portrays the urban estrangement in the times of social erosion and materialism.

Snippets from discarded footage, and with footage shot on the streets of Montreal and New York City, combined to a collage with the underlying argument as to whether man is a complex machine or a creature with a soul.

Storyline

From Arthur Lipsett, another incisive short film that looks at human might, majesty and mayhem. Compiled from some peculiar newsreel items of the last 50 years, the filmmaker calls this a time capsule, yet his arrangement of pictures makes it almost explosive. There are hundreds of items, once front-page stuff, but all wryly grotesque when seen in this reshuffle of the past.

5 May 2002 | by padingtonSee all my reviews

a found-footage film (film 'sampled' from other films) that seeks to replicate a time capsule for the year of 1954 (not entirely sure of the year). Starts with all the classic achievements of the year etc but then turns to much darker social commentary. an interesting insight into Lipsett's psyche (i believe his paranoia eventually got the better of him)
