The Industrial 'Fast & The Furious'
28 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Wow, here's an intense four minutes.

Hundreds of abstract images, many of them geometric, come flashing by each second, accompanied by dramatic music. It gets very intense and almost mesmerizing. It's fast and furious.

It's supposed be a "terrifying" look at "the inhumanity of progress" but that's all political baloney. This animated short by Theodore Ushev, supposedly was inspired by Herbert Marcuse's treatise "One-Dimensional Man." The musical score by Alexander Mossolov is a lot more "terrifying" than the point of the "story."

It's really a series of pictures of old industrial buildings, outside and inside, with some drawings added in, all bombarded at you in a crazed manner. I found it to be artistically fascinating but then again, I love abstract art. If you do, you'll like this, but beware: this four minutes can wear you out!
