Incredible short using archival footage and dialectic editing to parse out the experience from birth to death. Raises Rosenblatt from interesting short form auteur to master of cinematic practice. One of the best shorts I've seen, and now on repeat.
96/100 - Masterful
Interesting but superficial found footage-take on the 'life as carousel'-mataphor. A film that seems to be out of time, but not because of its wonderful historical stock footage. It's the geriatric simplicity that might be easily recreated by a geeky 15-year old with internet access and a ripped version of Final Cut Pro.
This feels like a 12-year-old's meditation on the ephemeral nature of life. If this is how old age makes you see the world, the perspective is bleak indeed. If you usually find Rosenblatt's "lost footage" format enjoyable, then you most likely will not be disappointed by this short. Note to myself: at this point, I am not even sure why I keep molesting myself watching his "work".
