  • Razzle Dazzle, The Lost World

    2006–07. USA. Directed by Ken Jacobs. Jacobs remixes a one-minute-long 1903 Edison film of children on a merry-go-round, wrapping it in digital plasma both to attack a spectacle-consumed society heading toward apocalypse, and to recover an irrecoverable world of innocence. Razzle Dazzle is Jacobs's visually and politically corrosive vision of paradise gone to hell—and a stunning testament to the myriad ways in which digital technology allows him to tear into images. 91 min.
