Castle Two

This film continues the theme of the military/industrial complex and its psychological impact upon the individual.

Like 'Castle 1' much use is made of newsreel montage although with entirely different material. The film is more evidently thematic, but still relies on a formal device - building up to a fast barrage of images (the two screens further split - to give four separate images at once for one sequence). The images repeat themselves in different sequential relationships and certain key images emerge both in the soundtrack and the visual. The alienation of the viewers involvement does not occur as often in this film as in 'Castle 1' but the concern with the viewer's experience of his present location still determines the structure of certain passages in the film.
