Reviews
"In nine silent minutes, this parable of the world's folly is as moving as could be."
The Sydney Morning Herald

"A witty metaphor of the rake's progress of human inventiveness. The latex models and sets have a life of their own pitched midway between reality and fantasy."
The (Melbourne) Age

"There's a powerful punch behind Hilligoss's simple craft."
(Melbourne) Herald Sun
