Art critiques art — or more precisely the film “Playtime” as a critique of Modernism. This film is one of my favorite critiques of Modernism. As we have read, discussed and continue to read this week this film has come to my mind several times. I am curious if anyone else has seen it — if so, has it shaped your view of the Modernist movement and how?

It was hard to pick a clip as this whole film is wonderful and made up almost entirely of vignettes which comment on Modernism and related subjects.
