CAROUSEL by Donald  Crews


Email this review


A simulated ride on a carousel--via the blurrrrr of a moving camera--in lieu of an exciting new perceptual experience, such as that afforded by Truck. True, at the first blurred "Horses off," there's a bit of a lift; otherwise, neither the interspersed toot-boom, toot-boom of the music, nor the increasing rush of the carousel, accomplishes anything but a picture-book approximation of the kind of special effects natural to film. And, impersonalized as the ride is, it's a whole lot less mesmerizing then watching the real thing.
