About

The films of Scott Barlett use a vocabulary–negative images, polarization, TV techniques, computer- film, electronic patterns– which is shared with that of the engineer, the mathematician, the computer itself. What he says with this vocabulary, however is quite different. In this film he uses the newest of terms to comment on one of the oldest stories; the enigma between men and women. – Museum of Modern Art.
"METANOMEN harnesses a kind of rhythmic conflict. The film is tense and out of this tenseness arises the vision of an enigmatic girl, set in opposition to a man shown as a contrasty profile. The two characters are set in a flux of manipulated technology run wild: the balance of forces that keeps man and woman alive in the web of the great industrial culture." – The Wittenberg Torch
