Can Dialectics Break Bricks?

An intriguing curiosity, this is Keith Sanborn's subtitled, black-and-white, letterboxed video version of a “postsituationist” 1973 French film by Rene Vienet—a redubbed and possibly recut version of a color Hong Kong martial arts movie, The Crush. Given the film-to-video and color-to-black-and-white transfers, this is surely as much an appropriation of someone else's material as the French “original” is. Broadly speaking, Vienet's work can be described as the What's Up, Tiger Lily? of French post-Marxist high theory—which is sometimes an outright and deliberate hoot, sometimes apparently serious, and sometimes too ambiguous in tone to be labeled one or the other.
