Simple, old idea takes an interesting turn. Some of the images are strong, thought-provoking, deep and creative; in between, there are some silly ones, sometimes bordering on a gimmick. The 10 minutes running time seems to be the sweet spot for this sort of experience.
Brilliant idea. I felt that more could have been done with it. The sequence of scenes didn't seem to have an inner logic, unless I missed it, aside from generally going backwards in time period. Means of production could be a theme but then why start with the protest? The video going backwards is striking and thought-provoking but the film doesn't seem to have much to hold it together.
This is when documentaries allow themselves to show the poetic value of image, where image can transcend it´s reference, it´s inevitable "this happened" message. Here, images divorce from context and gain a poetic, metaphorical value. The very surface of the image becomes the tool of the filmmaker, meaning is constructed, not merely shown.
