"Richard Myers is unquestionably a major talent of the American avant-garde and AKRAN one of his most important films. A feature-length deluge of incessant, brilliant bursts of images (short takes and jump cuts, single frames in series, freeze-frames slightly altered between takes) it creates a Joyce-like, dense and somber mosaic of memory and sensory impressions, a texture instead of a plot, a dream-like flow of visually-induced associations often flashing by faster than they can be absorbed. Described by the director as an 'anxious allegory and chilling album of nostalgia', its penetrating monomania is unexpectedly - subversively - realized to be a statement about America today: the alienation and atomization of technological consumer society is reflected in the very style of the film." - Amos Vogel, Film as a Subversive Art
