“G Lucas Crane treats his source material much like the method applied in Peter Tscherkassky’s film Outer Space—things are mashed, quartered, revisited and repeated from different angles, and in much the same way that Outer Space lets you rest occasionally, Lucas also allows moments of semi-placid, voyeur’s-view contemplation—that is, before the vain, cacophonous rattling of the Nonhorse takes over yet again.”
