Debord’s eighteen-minute Critique of Separation directs its experimental attentions to “the documentary.” Debord draws from a catalogue of newsreel footage and book covers, rephotographed photographs, views of Paris and its neighborhoods, and a catalogue of disabused, seemingly offhand footage of him and his friends in the porous zone comprising the café and the street. In Critique Debord makes his first tactical use of subtitles to problematize the receptions of the image and even of his own voice-over critique. He also expands the role of intertitles in an ironic vein (”One of the greatest anti-films of all time!”) — From Return of the Supressed by Keith Sanborn

Film composé d'enchevêtrement d'images (comics, photos d'identité, images détournées provenant d'autres films) qui se succèdent en subissant la surcharge de nombreux sous et sur-titres difficiles à lire. La caméra navigue entre images d’actualités, comme séparées du monde réel, symboles de la société de la consommation, et images du Quartier latin des années 1960, d’une jeunesse effervescente qui travaillait sa révolte au fond des cafés, à coup d’alcool, de rock and roll et de mots. — Wikipedia
