Scrambled Alice in Wonderland with brutiste track. Pierre Schaeffer (musique concrete) threatened to sue. "Chases within chases. A mother runs after a child. A man ... seems to be pursuing himself. A woman who has been nibbling her lipstick through half of the film is pursued by a man. The pursuit of art is represented by a painter daubing at a landscape in an empty frame." -- TDOTS
