R. Bruce Elder

Crack, Brutal, Grief



122 min. b&w 2000



“Powerful and raw, ‘Crack, Brutal, Grief’ is an impressive extension of R. Bruce Elder's obsessions with history, media culture, psychology, technology, and the cruelty found in nature. The film acts as a primal scream, literally and metaphorically. The point of departure for the film came shortly after the gruesome suicide of Elder's close friend.
