Completely redefines the new-wave shaky-cam aesthetic via the immediate establishment of big-city geography as labyrinth passencore the crimes of the classes. The fetishization of neon, constant motion and indistinguishable close-ups of True American Faces in recent indie films is tireless and tedious yet the Safdie brothers manage to tear our commonly acquainted ideas apart through the linear passage of time remaining open to obstruction and hence becoming obstructed - lights / poison / ideas-in-abstract all gradually become physically affecting, until filmmaking in its most abstracted form (the space between a shot) becomes the most important narrative device of all, completely defining and redefining the culture of the film. The Myth of the cities: Sisyphus tears his mountain down and Icarus doesn't know there even is a sun.
