The Austin Chronicle

U.S.A. (Unified System of Accounting) Tour

Not rated. Directed by Kyle Henry, Spencer Parsons.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., Jan. 17, 2003

Local filmmakers Kyle Henry and Spencer Parsons have been tilting at the windmills of the status quo with far more promising results than the Bush administration of late, and it’s no wonder - they’ve got transgressive cinema on their side. This collection of six shorts runs the gamut from the clever and disturbing "Big Mac Attack" (featuring the big clown with the little stomach) to "N.ew Y.ork C.asino," a one-sided dialogue on the Big Apple’s favorite pastime: consumerism run amok. (U.S.A. is a benefit for sponsor Blue Screen’s Spring 2003 season.) - Marc Savlov
