Fast Cheap and Out of Control – Errol Morris

A trailer for a film by Errol Morris that uses the idea of Juxtaposition as a central organizing device.

From Roger Ebert:

Life is a little like lion taming, wouldn’t you say? There we are in the cage of life, armed only with a chair and a whip, trying to outsmart the teeth and the claws. If we are smart enough or know the right lore, sometimes we survive, and are applauded.

Errol Morris‘ magical film “Fast, Cheap & Out of Control” is about four people who are playing the game more strangely than the rest of us. They have the same goal: to control the world in a way that makes them happy. There is a lion tamer, a man who designs robots, a gardener who trims shrubs so they look like animals and a man who is an expert on the private life of the naked mole rat.
