This short film from Arthur Lipsett is an abstract succession of unrelated views of the passing crowd. A commentary on a machine-dominated society, it is often cited as an influence on George Lucas's Star Wars and his conceptualization of "The Force."

Cinema as light, sound, movement, and spacing to reflect and distort the issues of existing in the modern world. People and things are placed and framed so as to be made intelligible, but the cacophony of life overwhelms our superficial distinctions. As invigorating as Jean Vigo, as forward thinking as Ornette Coleman.
