About

"Lawder achieves the perfection of all his techniques in a small six-minute film called RUNAWAY, in which he uses a few seconds of cartoon dogs chasing a fox. By stop motion, reverse printing, video scanning, and other techniques, by manipulating a few seconds of an old cartoon, he creates a totally new and different visual reality that is no longer a silly, funny cartoon. He elevates the cartoon imagery to the visual strength of an old Chinese charcoal drawing." – Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice
"A classic of modern cinema. A penetrating examination of undercurrents in film visualization. In short, a terrible film based on a bad joke." – Tom DeWitt "A kind of anti-film which illustrates the endless idea of a film being eternal - the loop, the cycle, the motorcycle, the motor mechanism of, in this case, running dogs. Running in such a loop that it becomes self-destructive. The anti-film, which is in a way to say, 'I am for film!'" – Stan Vanderbeek "... a delightful piece of madness ... a modern Ballet Mecanique." – Herman G. Weinburg
