Wisniewski, Chris. "American Sniper." Reverse Shot (January 26, 2015)
Reality can no longer be apprehended by the 'naked eye' the truth hides in the shadows. A seemingly innocent photograph of two lovers in an empty park slowly yields -- a truth not previously apparent; a corpse. To reveal the dirty secret, three levels of created reality are necessary, all involved with vision: the (photographed) photographer; the picture he and we view; and the detail discovered only by the magnifying glass.

Vern. "American Sniper." Vern's Reviews on the Films of Cinema (January 26, 2015)
Antonioni's entire work projects visual metaphors of non-communication, alienation, solitude - and desperate attempts to break through to others. But man is overpowered by objects, structures, and the physical world; and people rarely face each other except in tension. (12) Vogel, Amos. Film as a Subversive Art NY: Random House, 1974.
