The Expanding Airport

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 26, 2015

Of-the-period illustration now, along with some architectural sketches, and an unusually effective photo-montage of distressed airport travelers. The Expanding Airport is kind of like Emile de Antonio’s Eugene McCarthy film (America is Hard to See, 1970). The narrator sounds very confident that this is the way of the future. It isn’t. Strong misreading? The Sound of Trumpets?

Darwinian instincts might be to ignore this kind of false start, whether we find it in a film, a book, or an entire institution. Didn’t pan out! You can see that, but on the other hand there might be all sorts of profitable possibility, commercial and otherwise, in our taking just this kind of look.
