Usually, a filmmaker either attempts to erase all evidence of his effort to create a film, or he obsessively focuses on himself, his art, and filmmaking in general. These latter attempts sometimes draw attention to the "constructed" nature of our personal realities in a more or less effective and entertaining manner. This present film does neither of the above, but draws attention to choices made by the filmmaker as his hand reaches to select one set of images over another. In this post-quantum physicis era, the philosophical sloppiness of pretending that the observer does not participate in an interaction with the observed is no longer sustainable, as scientists such as Nobel laureate Ilya Prigogine or biologist Richard Dawkins are happy to state when the director's finger points to them.
