Hanging With Frank

26 08 2010

A fascinating short by David Graham Scott from the Shooting People series. There’s something distinctly eerie about Frank’s nostalgia for the noose; his unflinching, clinical mindset towards the ritual of “judicial hanging”, with rope lengths determined to the “nearest half inch” by reference to an empirical table. I’ll be returning to the subject of capital punishment, in the meantime this makes for compelling, unsettling viewing.
