The Way Things Go (Der Lauf Der Dinge)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 1987
Running time:30 minutes
Director:Peter Fischli, David Weiss
Writer:Peter Fischli, David Weiss

Description: Records, without narration, the self-destructing performance of a precarious structure 100 feet long is set in motion, and a chain reaction ensues. Gravity and kinetics are complimented by chemistry, water, fire and gas propulsion devices that combine in their effects to produce an adventurous and spectacular story about cause and effect, mechanism and art, improbability and precision interactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Rube Goldberg or Alfred Hitchcock.
