Water and Power

Water and Power

Pat O'Neill, one of the most interesting filmmakers in America today, offers a dazzling reflection on the conflict between nature and man in Los Angeles, or the desertification of the city's surroundings due to its enormous water consumption. More interestingly, it is also a film in the age-old tradition of city symphonies: a film about LA's foundation myths and the dreams it embodies, about its history and (grim) future, its topography and ethnography. O'Neill uses footage from several classic films to recreate the several layers of meaning emanating from the city, juxtaposing images and fantasies and hardly ever allowing one picture to go untouched. George Lockwood's swarming soundtrack is likewise composed of conflicting languages, an elaborate work of plunderphonics in which snippets of sound stolen from movies collide with electronic soundscapes, contemporary chamber music, improv, and what not.

Water and Power torrent reviews

erocustom (kr) wrote: a tad overhyped but a little fresh.

Dann M (jp) wrote: The last desperate gasp of a dead series, Children of the Corn: Genesis has little to offer. The story follows a married couple that breaks down on the back roads of the California countryside and fall into the hands of a preacher who claims that his son is the vessel of a great evil. The film is extremely light on blood and gore, as there are only four principle characters. And the script really stretches to find a story, and only tangentially relates it to Gatlin and He Who Walks Behind the Rows. Children of the Corn: Genesis is an unsatisfying and lazy return to one of the longest running franchises in horror cinema.

Mike N (us) wrote: It's easy to get lost in a kind of trance in the romance and how well its filmed with style, but it did get dull and lost at times, but it was pretty..pretty.. good.
