What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

Risky strategy -- All moments have equal weight. You could profitably edit the film into hundreds of Joe Cornell versions.

No builds, no dead moments, crosscutting yields no suspense. Just vague irritation "excitement-state" -- brickish "and then... and then...", montage.

Kinetic sculpture effect -- impossibility of composition. Movement in every shot -- the movement guides the "story" content, such as it is.

Also plane and lens effects, headlights sliding the wall -- foreground scooting in relation to the middle ground or BG.
