A Trip Down Memory Lane

                                A Trip Down Memory Lane
| 12 min

From Arthur Lipsett (Very Nice, Very Nice and 21-87), another incisive short film that looks at human might, majesty and mayhem. Compiled from some peculiar newsreel items of the last 50 years, the filmmaker calls this a time capsule yet his arrangement of pictures makes it almost explosive. There are hundreds of items, once front-page stuff, but all wryly grotesque when seen in this reshuffle of the past.

    I absolutely loved this; just finished reading Bruce Elder's paper, "The Cinema We Need"(1988) and it set me up to be surprised by this film's subversiveness. I enjoy strange experimental music too, so the noise at the end was awesome too.

    Of course, history never ends.
