The title is not a misprint. This is Anne McGuire’s 1992 video reedit of Robert Wise’s 1971 The Andromeda Strain, about a pathogen from outer space. The whole original film is here, with each shot in normal forward motion, but the order of the shots is reversed—hence the title. This somewhat playful “deconstruction” of mainstream Hollywood has its virtues: with narrative causality flipped, one looks for causes of events already seen, questions traditional forms of narrative organization. But while we often hear the dialogue reversed—many lines get only single shots—longer takes contain whole conversations that we hear in the original order, providing a confusing disruption of the film’s “backwardness.” It is unique, but the interest of this rather mechanical exercise exhausts itself after a half hour.
