Experimental, abstract and strangely devoid of fresh insight, this Danish art film, among the last of late writer/performance artist/ social activist David Wojnariowicz, who finished recording the narration two months before he died of AIDS in 1992, offers a look at the hopeless state of American culture. To make his point, Danish filmmaker Knud Vesterkov presents a sequence of multi-layered and distorted color images. As the images change, Wojnariowicz tells stories from his own life, muses about the American people, and offers fragments of strange tales.
