Incomprehensible Visual Gibberish
19 October 2020 | by SpaaceMonkeeSee all my reviews

The plot makes no sense. I frankly don't think it's capable of being "spoiled" in any legitimate sense. This short movie is more about the visuals than any coherent narrative. Unfortunately, the visuals largely fall into the category of doing odd things with the camera, just because they can.

If you're thinking of watching this because it was included on your Criterion Collection version of House, I would recommend you skip this and move on to another movie from your set instead. It doesn't matter what you pick; almost any one of them would be a better use of your time.
