  • Sunrise's rating of the film The Soul of Things

    While documenting the fluctuations of globalism in contemporary cityscape, this is a really thoughtful and modernist essay about modernism itself. The dynamic formalism behind multiple exposures and fades oscillates concepts of beauty and ugliness as Angerame's camera explores the viability of capitalist ruins of the world-marketplace. Does the man-made destroy nature's beauty or does nature deny constructed beauty?
