  6. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Slow Action

    Un docu-ficción ingenioso. El discurso etnográfico y en paralelo la contemplación visual de cuatro espacios alterados por una realidad apocalítica. Es la relfexión de lo que podría decir Darwin sobre la selección natural o sobre la fundación de las civilizaciones, como también la decadencia de las mismas.

  7. dschank's rating of the film Slow Action

    engaging, inventive cross between "la jetee," herzog's "fata morgana" (only better) and robert smithson's art/writings. the atmosphere and soundtrack occasionally outperform the texts, which relate the stories of ambiguous future utopias. some stories work better than others (the third part is great), and the faux-ethnography becomes occasionally annoying. everyone with a camcorder should make movies like this.

    Psychogeography played out on atomic beaches and cosmic oceans, where being intrepid seems like a vice paid for by the dissolution of enigma. Where balancing the equations of love with the plasticity of lust causes zones of orthogonals littered with conspicuous debris. Laser cubes as the new oracles, the language of quantum physics their tarot. Where minds gone to the effects of topology refuse to terminate...

  11. Xavier Coronel's rating of the film Slow Action

    Sci-fi exploration on lost insular civilizations. Rivers creates perfection between the blurry lines of documentary, experimental cinema and what is defined as fiction, evolving a brutal awareness of man, nature and time. My favorite Rivers.
