A gorilla, human faces in what look like a state of confusion, tall buildings, rapidly moving clouds, a swamp in Louisiana ... what all these have to do with (to quote the Internet Movie Database's listing) "humanity's trance-like relationship with technology" is beyond me. I've found Reggio's 'body of work' (always accompanied by tiresome Philip Glass scores) to be pointless, if certainly well-photographed, and this one fits right along with the others: at least he's consistently vapid. He plays around with camera filters and effects and he strikes me as someone visually inclined but intellectually vacuous. Make of it what you can, but to me it's an 80-minute exercise in cinematography masquerading as some (textually unsupported) 'deeper statement.'
