The Unstable Object2011

  • 3.5
Daniel Eisenberg's THE UNSTABLE OBJECT juxtaposes the production of luxury automobiles in Dresden, clocks in Chicago and cymbals in a town outside of Istanbul. These detailed observations of modern factories reveal the distance between the creation and consumption of objects within our globalized economy. This results in a rich visual experience made all the more ironic by the fact that the workers in Chicago assembling the clocks are blind (and therefore never experience the scenes which the filmmaker presents). Although clearly referencing early industrial films, Eisenberg cleverly and attentively recorded all the sound entirely on location, creating a heightened esthetic universe all his own. - Stela Jelincic

A fascinating film which opens with a shot of the most beautiful industrial building you have ever seen. There are philosophical underpinnings to this film, and some facts which are not spelled out, so it worth doing a Google search on the film.

The more I think about the film, the more interesting it becomes.
