A nearly silent allegorical fable of man vs. nature that explores the medium's potential in a stunning, cinematic fashion. A lone figure in a diving suit drags an enormous wooden ark through the desert, scarring the earth with its deep furrow. A plane crashes. A zeppelin prowls the azure skies, its crew seduced by caged women, while Bedouins and soldiers clash under the blazing sun. This poetic tale entrances as it pulls all these elements and characters together into a haunting yet mesmerizing canvas.

It has a European flair to it, but it's the perfect example of how powerful this medium is with its visuals. In a way this book is going to ask a lot of you while reading it and that's pretty great, actually. Read Full Review
