The Way Things Go
- movie Description
The Way Things Go (Der Lauf Der Dinge) is a 30 minute film created by Swiss contemporary artistic duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss. The film's over-arching theme is that of impending post-apocalyptic chaos. Fischli and Weiss create a cacophonous mood by setting several blunt objects into motion. The whirlpool of confusion starts with a trash bag which begins to unwind. It is not long before several other strange objects - tires, ladders, soap, oil drums, and gasoline - are incorporated into the mess. This organized confusion was filmed inside a warehouse which extends no more than 100 feet. In effect, The Way Things Go is more of an experiment than a linear story. The film received critical acclaim upon its release in 1987 including recognition at the Berlin International Film Festival as well as the Hong Kong International Film Festival. The Way Things Go is a film for those who enjoy taking an unconventional approach to a theme often addressed in modern film.moreless
