Symphonie Mécanique

A beautiful and inspired film between Menzies’ Things To Come and Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey on mass production techniques, with a beautiful and inspired electronic score by Pierre Boulez, who later on at a New York Philharmonic cocktail party was adjured to admire a James Taylor song as a “smash hit”, to which he replied that it was “mass shit”.
