I guess that all those slow motion shots, aerial shots, and so on, represent the way aliens see the Earth. But why does Michael Madsen suppose that aliens see things with the eyes of a pretentious film-maker?
I cannot think of any other "landscape" film on an industrial town and its inhabitants, that is as fair, precise and touching as this one. Each one of the individual portraits in the film is a masterpiece. So many things to learn from a 15 minutes film !
