88:88 (Medina, 2015)

88

The absence of reason; living without a sense of origin or destination. a meaningless search for finitude: for meaning in the lack of meaning, for structure in a lack of structure; the perennial experience of banality, of  repetition. distortion. decay. To become shackled, imprisoned by the image of a life without reason.

At times brilliant, mind bending, and visually masterful. Edited in an almost musical manner, with images recurring as motifs and the blending of colour, sound, and shape into an orgiastic expression of order within chaos. At other times, indulgent, affected, personal to a point of impenetrability and obfuscation, obnoxiously abstract or directionless.

Always impressive as hell.

89/100 – Excellent.
