Fait Accompli: Episode 1: Caused (Reduxpost)

From Jesse Furgurson's blog, in his top movies of the year, slotted between Blue Is the Warmest Color and Gravity:

"Is it sci-fi? Is it mumblecore? Is it a Rivette riff? Is the sound supposed to be doing that? Is this rambling half-impenetrable conversation ever going to end? Am I wasting 90 minutes of my life? But if this is just navel-gazing, why does it have so much of the world in it? Is it some kind of a diary? Is it all about the image, and what digital can do with it? Da fug?

From Zach Campbell's blog entry, Year's End, in the "Asterisks" section among great films by Gabe Klinger, Dan Sallitt, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, and Gina Telaroli: "Craig Keller's Fait Accompli: Episode 1: Caused (another very beautiful work to look at and seep into)..."
