USA Dance: New York City Ballet (1965) An assault on the alienation of modern industrial life, this film takes the viewer on a chilling tour of a paper factory. Set to dissonant music and accompanied by poetic and often abstract narration whose scope extends beyond problems of the factory to suggest the insanity of modern existence in general.--Peter De Domenico, 6/94.
