Before Oliver Stone rewrote the rules of montage...

Bruce Conner made this miraculous assemblage of found footage, scored to a stirring/ghastly/nightmarish NFL Week in Review score, which can be seen at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis...all the time. In its infiniteness and promise of endlessly varied pleasure, it's like a small, homemade document of the boundless happiness made by movies.
