Critics reviews

It traces the labyrinthine negotiations and cyclical repetitions of the urban cocktail party, offering a rhythmically and spatially complex choreography developed through assertive editing, loop printing, the mismatch within a synthetic continuity of tracking shots, and freeze-frame.
