  • This film marks a definitive turning point in Farocki's career... The earlier goal of a cinema that could ‘bring everything together’ in a totalising act of cognition has given way to a sense that the given and visible world is too complex for such an aesthetic; guerilla tactics and techniques are shown to be recuperable within the logic of capital; and the ultimate fantasy of the student movement, to reshape the world in the image that it projected, is shown to be an almost arrogant fantasy.
