[Ronald Tavel on John Aes-Nihil] But what [The Drift] is really about or what it really is is not something Hollywood can put its finger on easily. For it is not about the depravity of its own viewpoint and vision. This Aes-Nihil captures admirably. And with a fraction of the effort that went into the commercial venture. What is most elusive about The Drift and perhaps it is the secret to what makes it work is that we are never certain of Aes-Nihil's conscious intentions.
