OUTER SPACE by Peter Tscherkassky (1999. Austria)
"...Tscherkassky can seem to turn the violent force of disjointed narrative and avant-garde aesthetic into a villain of sorts: we see a young woman enter a small suburban home, surrounded first by an eerie calm... the woman is assaulted by broken images, the rumblings of the film itself (being torn and juxtaposed against itself). She screams in pain, seemingly raped and horrified by the narrative break. She seems to struggle against this chaos, however "the film itself screeches and tears as the sprockets and optical soundtrack violently invade the fictional world." It is irresistible."
