This may be the most "minimal" film ever made. There are no characters, no plot, no music and no crazy camera tricks (unless you count moving very slowly to the right for 30 minutes the most radical, off-the-wall thing ever). In essence, this is one big Rube Goldberg machine that, when set in motion, encompasses hundreds of feet of everyday objects (bottles, ladders, tires, the occasional smoldering chemical reaction, explosions, etc.) moving in one chain reaction after another. That's it. No one learns a lesson, nobody fall in love, the butler didn't do it and no wishes come true (save for the audience's as certain actions, like liquid reactions, are faded in and out of so we are not treated to agonizingly long shots of "something" happening for however long it takes them to happen). So what's the point? To make everyone who took a Physics class feel that much dumber? Maybe, but I think it was just a couple of guys who wanted to see if something like this could be done... you know, once they had a ridiculous amount of free time. It can, no doubt, but 30 minutes is a long time and no one should be surprised to find their mind wandering as the fizzle of an ending gets closer. There's definitely nothing else like it (except for the hundreds of similar YouTube videos).
