Film Criticism or: No Stars

In "Film Criticism, or No Stars", Ernst Schmidt jr. lets the film stripŽs perforations run through the projector as is for the soundtrack. The result is a constant thumping, a surprising example of a self-referential ”industrial noise” as an expression of enraged impotence. (Christian Scheib)
