“The voyage is filmed so the spectator experiences the river at a speed that is impossible in real life. By pixilating at various rates, the filmmakers turn the voyage into a visually spectacular ride that emphasizes not the river itself but the transportation and industrial technologies arrayed along it.” —Scott MacDonald
