    Wonderful.
    This is quite literally sublime, but there's a note
    of bathos too as the birds flock & squawk around - you
    catch your breath -and if you don't catch your breath
    please look hard into your soul - & then you have to
    smile a little. Something of Shelley's Ozymandias too
    in this: 'Look on my works ye mighty and despair!'
    There's an interesting dichotomy in Doron's work
    between the highly worked pieces - those with music &
    actors, or the poetic documentaries - & these
    apparently simple, found, works where he points the
    camera at the right time, the at-the-right-time,
    Cartier-Bresson like, being key..
    (Indeed it seems to me there's somethig not dissimilar
    to the influence of surrealism in C-B's work operating
    in Doron's - it's as if the surreal/magical realist
    element has been distilled, refined down so delicately
    & completely that its presence is almost imperceptible
    at first glance..it's only on further
    investigation/contemplation/reflection that the
    revelation, the unwrapping, of the profound
    strangeness & singularity of the subject as a *central
    theme & action* of the piece becomes clear)
    I really recommend to people they spend some time
    looking at Doron's recent work...in particular from
    'broadway canal'
    http://the9th.com/?p1
    to this one.
    It doesn't shout from any rooftops, it has no
    gimmicks, no punch lines, in some ways it's quite
    austere but it has a genuine depth & an unforced
    complexity. Each movie is a mystery movie - one
    returns many times & still finds something new..
    It's an impressive & substantial - & I believe it
    will be an enduring - body of work.
