  • msmichel's rating of the film City Out of Time

    What is art? Is art what only stands the test of time? Low's 1969 short documentary wanders around Venice looking at some of the work of that year's 'Vienelle' as well as the discarded and weather beaten around the city and ponders those questions. Not deep but at only 16 minutes quite watchable. Narrated by William Shatner.
