1992 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 2' 24
Mom and Dad are shot dead and an adolescent fantasy of arrest, imprisonment and abdication unfolds, permeated at intervals by a bearded man with facial tremors.
"Squires' gutsy video begins with a double murder and never looks back. Varying between action and almost abstract visual play, it takes its title from a country and western song and like the singer it ends by glorifying the 'acte gratuit'"
[Stuart Morgan, New Contemporaries 1993/94]
