The score's trajectory from synthesizer to Schubert to grand-style minimalism did its job as well.

Nelson's Transit: Next Stop has acquired a spectacular set of animations which contextualize her urban dwellers' attempts to manage their relationships. Yet Barry Steele's design is so big that it draws undue attention to itself. It works best during a night scene in which life becomes a dream. But I am not sure whether adding a filmic sense of passing and changing habitats brings that much to this funny-yet-tender perspective on what it means to be a contemporary city dweller. *
