"[Ben] Russell's work boasts a bracing degree of rigor and vigor." - Jason Anderson, Artforum
Silent cinema meets avant garde psychodrama/trance film. A clown frolicking through urban ruins is creepy as hell.
This has very little or nothing to do about the events leading up to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and more to do with our obsession with violence as a voyeuristic event. Great use of an abandoned and trashed warehouse as a backdrop. Love the clown!
I cant believe that I wasted time watching this - rather pointless waste of film
