(2004, motion picture, 82 linear minutes)
There was the spark.
There was the watcher.
There was the keeper.
There was the destroyer.
In his first feature-length motion picture, Simon Tarr paints a stunning, sweeping technohistory of the human race to obsolescence. Sacred geometry and ominous CGI intertwine with a retelling of the story of Noah to illuminate the illusion of authority and the nature of autonomy in the contemporary digital sphere.
Rubicon is available for purchase from Amazon!
You can also rent it from Netflix (if you still have the DVD-by-mail version)!
If you enjoyed the film, a review at either or both of these sites would go a long way in offsetting the reviewers who are personally offended by experimental films!
