"Kitajima alights on two facets of the modern city- the anonymous International Style architecture of the city's commercial quarter and the distracted expressions of its citizens as they travel the hectic, crowded streets. By cutting between long views of the urban topography, taken when devoid of people and traffic, and close-ups of individuals during busy workdays, he draws a comparison between the stern, calm anonymity of the corporate architecture and the anxious denizens scurrying in the shadow of the buildings. Kitajima may make an obvious point, but he makes it with verve and elegance, in the manner of a contemporary Yasuhiro Ishimoto."
