Determinations

Oliver Hockenhull's experimental documentary—inspired by the arrest and sentencing of the Toronto Five, members of the Vancouver Direct Action anarchist group—calls to mind the multifaceted questioning of media information and language in general in some of Godard's more radical works of the late 60s—particularly Le gai savoir—that featured different forms of collage. All sorts of elements are woven into the mixture, including documentary footage, interviews, dialogues, punk rock, images from TV, performance art involving slides and silhouettes, and many different kinds of image processing. Alternately thoughtful and chaotic, it gives one a lot to chew over—although some viewers may feel that they've already been here before, in spite of the sincerity and urgency of the expression (1988).
