    @Olum, the video linked by Ebbywebby fits the Amos Vogel's description:
    This is an example of minimal cinema "with a purpose". The filmmaker takes a brief scene from an old Hollywood cartoon in which running dogs, deflected by an unseen obstacle, pull up short and stop; by transforming this scene into a continuous loop, the action is compulsively repeated, the dogs running endlessly to and fro, while the image itself is further manipulated and degraded ("I showed the film in Washington once and someone in the audience called it the most savage indictment of American foreign policy he had ever seen" - Standish Lawder)

    I think the youtube video description is a bit confusing...
