Description

DEATH WISH, Starring Charles Bronson, Architect, is based on the sensationalistic and controversial Death Wish movies (“Bad art is one thing, but Death Wish is ludicrous.” -Variety magazine) in which Bronson portrays an architect who becomes a vigilante-killer. Comprised of stills from the films and quotations from almost anywhere one can imagine, Death Wish by Treyf is a kind of enigmatic allegory, in which Bronson is Everyman, and Architecture is “the dream/nightmare that goes to bed with each of us at night.”
